Tips for Writing a Better Asset Protection Specialist Resume

1. Connect your asset protection duties to the bigger picture

They say a resume should focus on positive results and outcomes. But how do you follow that rule when your job is all about preventing negative ones?

Here’s the trick. When drafting a job description, remember that each of your duties has some impact or influence on the organization’s short- and long-term success. Speak to that broader impact, and you’ll enhance your resume significantly.

Even if you can’t recall examples or data to quantify a work area, that doesn’t mean you have to word it as a basic duty. You can always state the general, intended result or value of the respoinsibility in question. Try simply adding the phrase “in order to” at the end of the duty statement, then jotting down whatever general purposes or outcomes you think of (and then delete “in order” from your final resume for brevity). You might be surprised how much stronger the revised statement is. Just as important, it’s a much more accurate account of your work’s depth and impact.

Example:

  • Set and execute asset protection strategies [in order] to reinforce company’s bottom line

 

2. Ditch the phrase “attention to detail”

For an asset protection specialist, attention to detail is key.

But countless other professionals cite “attention to detail” as a key skill on their resume. The phrase is so overused that it no longer means anything to recruiters and hiring managers.

How can you express this theme in a more precise and compelling way? Simple: Convert it to a verb phrase. Specifically, start a sentence with “Closely attend to,” “Closely track,” or “Closely monitor.” Then flesh it out with details from your job experience.

Example:

  • Closely monitor CCTV transmission to spot and quickly respond to any signs of criminal activity

 

3. Find the relevance of your non-asset protection jobs

Although you must outline your recent work history on your resume, you don’t have to (nor should you) give more than the basic details on any job that doesn’t pertain to your current goals.

Keep this tip in mind when drafting your work history, so you don’t type out lengthy descriptions of jobs that won’t speak to your target employers. Often a great resume strategy for unrelated jobs is to focus your description on the “soft skills” you gained there that now complement your overall skillset.

Example:

Administrative Assistant / Receptionist, MCO Corp., New York, NY | August 2015 to September 2017

  • Gained strong early experience in customer relations and careful procedure documentation

How to Align Your Asset Protection Specialist Resume With a Job Posting

For each job in your Experience section, consider adding a company description. You can place this description in brackets right next to or below the company name. It also helps to match formatting. For instance, if you’ve italicized the company name, italicize the description too. (See resume #1 above for an example.)

Company descriptions let you show any similarities between your past and desired employers. For instance, maybe you’ve worked for companies in the same industry or of a similar size. By working these details into your descriptions, you can make your resume more inclusive to the job at hand and likely to produce an interview.
