Sample Entry Level Finance Resume

This finance resume is from a recent graduate with little professional experience but does a great job highlighting her transferable accomplishments.

Since the writer of this resume has recently graduated with a bachelor's degree, she does not have much experience. Still, it is important when writing a finance resume to try and detail as much as possible one's experience and developed skills. For this reason, the writer of this resume included a “professional competencies” section where she highlighted her knowledge in specific financial areas such as financial modeling and risk assessment. This would also be a good place to put any computer programs or technologies the applicant is effective in.

Much like a business resume, it is important to quantify one's experience. It does little for the employer if an applicant says “cut processing time.” However, since the writer of this resume specified that she cut processing time by “12 percent,” the employer now understands the success and results of the experience the applicant participated in, and that the applicant is results-oriented. Though she has little experience and is looking for an entry-level finance position, it is important that she only concentrates on relevant work experience and detailed those results with specific measurements and professionalism.
