How to use our brand ambassador resume template
By opening one of the templates below, then selecting “File” and “Make a Copy” you can start filling in your information to make your very own resume!
We have 3 templates:
Above the Fold
This term refers to putting something on the front page of a newspaper “above the fold” so it’s the first thing people see when they read. When applying this concept to a resume, you want all of your most important information at the top: Name, Contact Info, Photo and a short introduction.
When providing your contact info, be careful how much information you give. An email is the tried and true method if you want to avoid putting your phone number out there. You don’t want to be concerned who or where you resume goes, you want as many people to see it as possible. So make sure you are comfortable sharing any information you put on it.
Another thing to include on your resume are links to your Trusted Herd profile, Linkedin, or even a personal website. This allows you to share even more information, because recruiters can follow your journey beyond your resume.
Add your photo
Include a professional and engaging picture of yourself! It should showcase your friendliness and welcoming personality.
Write an attention grabbing introduction
Here is your chance to show off your best traits and tell a potential recruiter and employer why they should hire you.
Do you have relevant experience in events?
Yes. That’s great – definitely add it!
No. That’s okay too, put some other relevant experience like conversing with people, working in fast-paced environments, customer service, etc.
Make sure to include any relevant certifications you may have. The best part about the live event world is its diversity! With so many different events, a recruiter may be looking to hire someone with your certifications.
Last but not least, include your education. Put your high school education and any secondary education you may have. Your resume can benefit you as a relatable document to the person reviewing it. So the more information you include, the more likely you are to meet someone who went to the same school or program as you!
