Tips for Writing a Better Audio-Video Technician Resume

1. Turn your non-technical jobs into a resume asset

Although you must outline your recent work history on your resume, you don’t have to give more than the basic details about any position unrelated to your current goals. Remind yourself when fleshing out your work history since it’s easy to forget and end up typing lengthy descriptions of past jobs that won’t speak to your target employers. For unrelated jobs on a technical resume, often you can focus on describing the general “soft skills” you gained that now complement your overall skill set.

Example:

Manager, QRS Stores, Detroit, MI | April 2020 to February 2021

  • Gained a strong sense of teamwork and collaboration overseeing a top-ranked, 10-person group at this retail location

 

2. Include a profile summary

At the top of your resume (just under the contact header), write a paragraph summary of your most relevant experience. Also, consider mentioning your communication style or other “soft skills,” which can help further balance out the more technical focus your resume is prone to have. Including a profile section lets you train the hiring manager’s attention on the things that set you apart from other applicants.

Example:

Diligent Audio-Video Technician with 10+ years of advancement and experience. Recently demonstrated success in a leadership role; committed to helping junior technicians innovate and succeed. Quickly isolate and solve urgent technical problems to ensure seamless film and TV broadcasts.

3. Spell out your results

You can boost your resume by going beyond standard duties to describe the result and impact of your efforts. And be sure to quantify that impact with hard data if you have figures available.

Example:

  • Introduced new standard procedures that helped streamline equipment setup operations, raising efficiency by 26%

 

Key Skills Hiring Managers Look for on Audio-Video Technician Resumes

Audio-video technicians boast an impressive array of hard skills and technical abilities. You can capture your broad expertise on your resume by including a “Key Skills” section as in the above resume examples. Also, consider including a separate “Technical Skills” section to call out particular programs and platforms you’ve worked with. Below is a list of just some of the key skills you might showcase:

Key Skills and Proficiencies
Audio & Video Technology Complex Problem-Solving
Cross-Functional Collaboration Equipment Monitoring & Troubleshooting
Internal & External Client Relations Inventory Management
Meeting & Event Facilitation Preventative Maintenance
Process Improvement Task Prioritization
Team Leadership & Motivation Time Management
Video Conferencing  

Common Action Verbs for Audio-Video Technician Resumes

Audio-video technicians might work on many different types of equipment for many different events and productions throughout their careers. That broad experience can pose a challenge for your resume if it leads you to introduce long “laundry lists” of information with passive phrases like “Accountable for” or “Equipment included.”

There’s a better way. List only the equipment and events you’d like to continue working on in your next role. And introduce them with dynamic verbs. Below are a few verbs you can use to begin building powerful bullet points in your Experience section.

Action Verbs
Configured Coordinated
Created Decreased
Designed Dismantled
Eliminated Enhanced
Generated Improved
Increased Initiated
Introduced Isolated
Maintained Prevented
Raised Reconfigured
Restored Set up

How to Align Your Audio-Video Technician Resume With the Job Description

When you find an audio-video technician job that intrigues you, take a close look at the posting description. Does it call for any technical skills you possess but haven’t featured on your resume yet? If so, consider mentioning those skills in your resume’s profile section. This extra step will help your resume get past ATS screenings, which employers often use to find applicants with the right skillset.

Also, note the industry or sector of the job posting in question. Do you have any experience in that same industry? If so, consider mentioning that as well to show the employer you understand their particular business environment.
