Tips for Writing a Better Project Coordinator Resume

Pare back your non-project coordination 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 Experience section, so you don’t type out long descriptions of jobs that won’t speak to your target employers. For any jobs you’ve held outside project coordination, consider focusing your description on the “soft skills” you gained there that now complement your overall skillset.

Example:

Solutions Specialist, Verizon, Eugene, OR | September 2017 to July 2019

  • Gained strong foundation in sales, customer relations, and team collaboration
  • Consistently ranked in top 10% of team for sales revenue
  • Achieved and maintained a 99% client satisfaction rating

Spell out your results as a project coordinator

Every one of your duties has some positive impact or influence, helping your organization succeed in the short and long term. Speak to that broader impact in your job descriptions, and you’ll improve your resume greatly.

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 duty in question. Try simply adding the phrase “in order to” at the end of the duty statement, then jot 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:

Hold initial meetings with potential clients [in order] to define their needs and recommend custom service solutions

Avoid jargon

Any time you write a long business word when a short word would do, that’s jargon. A classic example: People use the words “utilize” or “utilization” when they should use “use.”

You’ll make your resume harder to read if you let words that should be short and simple become words that are long and clunky. Here are five more usual suspects:

duty 🡪 responsibility
goal 🡪 objective
launch 🡪 implementation
law 🡪 regulation
skill 🡪 capability

Whenever you find yourself using a long word on your resume, stop and ask: Is there a shorter synonym? This habit will help keep your document clear and concise.

Example:

Good


Used strong project coordination skills to set viable goals, schedules, and methods.

Bad


Utilized advanced project coordination capabilities to establish potentially effective objectives, schedules, and methodologies.

Common Key Words for Project Coordinator Resumes

One of the best ways to improve your resume is to add keywords.

That’s because most employers now use an applicant tracking system (ATS), which scans each submitted resume for keywords relevant to the job opening at hand. When the ATS finds a resume with many relevant keywords, it flags the document for the hiring manager.

To make your resume ATS-friendly, add a keyword-rich “Skills” or “Expertise” section (as in the examples above). Here are some common keywords for project coordinators:

Key Skills and Proficiencies
Budget Management Complex Problem-Solving
Cost Reduction & Elimination Cross-Functional Collaboration
Process Redesign & Improvement Project Management Software
Project Scheduling Reporting & Documentation
Risk Management & Mitigation Stakeholder Relations Management
Strategic Business Planning Targeted Resource Allocation
Task Prioritization Team Leadership & Motivation
Time Management

Common Action Verbs for Project Coordinator Resumes

One of the most common resume mistakes is using too few verbs. You may repeat the same generic verb (say, “Manage”) many times or rely on passive phrases like “Responsible for” or “Accountable for.” These tendencies can distract your reader and fail to show the dynamic nature of your work. The following list will help you mix up the verbs on your project coordinator resume:

Action Verbs
Assess Coordinate
Create Direct
Ensure Execute
Facilitate Improve
Leverage Monitor
Oversee Plan
Prepare Promote
Recommend Review
Revise Schedule
Source Supervise

How to Align Your Resume With a Job Posting

One thing that’s unique to each job posting is the description of the hiring company. You can enhance your resume by tailoring it based on any details about the company that resonate with you. Follow these four steps:

Step 1: Jot down a few notes on the type of work environment you like best. For instance, you may prefer an environment that’s:

  • Client-focused
  • Collaborative
  • Fast-paced
  • Forward-looking
  • Process-oriented
  • Quality-focused

Step 2: When you find a job posting that intrigues you, look for any details about the hiring company or its work culture.

Step 3: Compare those details against your preferred work environment and highlight any overlap.

Step 4: Add a line or two to your Profile emphasizing that similarity. For example, say you prefer a work environment that’s client-focused. You find a posting that says “We are an organization that places customer satisfaction at the center of every decision.” You can then add a Profile line such as:

  • “Thrive in client-focused work environments.”
  • “Committed to helping build lucrative, long-term relationships with customers.”

This simple exercise can make your resume more accurately show why you’re a great fit for the role as well as why the hiring manager should call you for an interview.
