Tips for Writing a Better Producer Resume

1. Streamline how you show multiple client engagements

When entering a past job in your resume’s Experience section, it’s usually best to list the basic details in this order:

Job Title, Employer Name, City, ST

work dates

But what if you worked on a freelance basis for a few clients at the same time? Following the above format forces you to repeat the same job title, location, and work dates, as in:

Producer — freelance, Client One, Miami, FL | 2017 to 2018

Producer — freelance,Client Two, Miami, FL | 2017 to 2018

Producer — freelance,Client Three, Miami, FL | 2017 to 2018

The effect can become tedious and distracting to the hiring manager. (A good rule of thumb for keeping your resume concise: never repeat information when you don’t have to.) In cases like this, a better format option is to list the common details first, once, and then indent your differing client names underneath.

Producer, Freelance, Miami, FL

2017 to 2018

Client One

Client Two

Client Three

2. Spell out your results

Have you been able to lower production costs, raise efficiency, or improve collaboration among crew members? You can give your resume a boost 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:

  • Established new content development practices that shaved ~4 days off average production timeline

 

3. Use a straightforward tone

For nearly any piece of regular writing, it’s important to choose language that sets and maintains a clear tone or “voice.” That principle also applies to resumes, which call for a formal yet forthright tone (as opposed to the more casual tone of a LinkedIn profile and the eager, confident voice of a cover letter).

To achieve a forthright voice on your resume, try and use simple sentences and straightforward descriptions of your experience. Keep this advice in mind especially when writing your profile section, since you may be tempted (or think you need) to use overly “promotional” terms like Brilliant or Outstanding at, when a more direct phrase like Skilled in is better.

Example:

Key Skills Hiring Managers Look for on Producer Resumes

Producers coordinate the many moving parts behind film, TV, and other media production. The role calls for versatile communication and collaboration skills, plus a firm grasp of how to keep projects on schedule. For an effective producer resume, include a “Key Skills” section (under the profile) that gives the hiring manager a quick overview of your expertise. Consider including any of the terms below:

Key Skills and Proficiencies
Budgeting & Cost Accounting Cost Reduction & Elimination
Creative Content Development Cross-Functional Collaboration
Efficiency Improvement Film Production
Marketing & Advertising Media Production
Process Redesign Process Streamlining
Production Operations Production Permitting
Project Management Public Relations
Stakeholder Relations Talent Recruiting
Task Prioritization Team Leadership & Motivation
Vendor Relations & Negotiations Video Content Production

Common Action Verbs for Producer Resumes

Even with an active role like yours, you might find yourself running out of action verbs to describe your work. To help you over the hump, we put together this list of strong resume verbs. As you look over the options, keep in mind that the best resume verbs will show you creating or changing something for the better, rather than simply handling a task. So, while a verb like Managed is OK, it’s less impressive than a verb like Enhanced or Increased.

(Note, the verbs below are in past tense, but you will want to change them to present tense for any duties you hold currently.)

Action Verbs
Allocated Budgeted
Collaborated Developed
Eliminated Ensured
Executed Expedited
Generated Guided
Improved Interacted
Led Managed
Partnered Produced
Redesigned Reduced
Scheduled Streamlined

How to Align Your Producer Resume With the Job Description

What kinds of productions have you managed (film, TV, fashion photography), and for what audience demographics? Keep details like these in mind when you’re looking at producer jobs that interest you. If a posting includes details about the media platform or market that overlap with your own background, be sure to mention that in your resume profile (preferably in the opening sentence, as in the above examples). Taking this extra step will make your resume that much more relevant to the job at hand, and therefore more likely to attract the hiring manager’s notice.
