Train Clerk Resume
First, I will tell you a little bit about the train clerk position, then about how to write the resume. As a train clerk you have the following responsibilities: issue tickets for the travelers, supervise the luggage being loaded, unloaded and tagged properly so that it reaches the same destination as its owner, offer support to the train station's postal clerk and the administrative office personnel in their daily duties and more. Of course, the clerk position is a very important one for the good functioning of the railway station. However, nowadays, the number of train clerks has declined because the computer is being used more and more for registering data. There is also the possibility of being promoted if you complete your duties according to the policies and get too experienced to further occupy this position.
Next section of this article will focus on how exactly the resume should be looking like when you're done writing it. There are many who think you shouldn't write your own resume, and I agree if you are a beginner at it. However with this template in hand you can write your own and have it look professional. In order for the resume to bring you best chances of an interview and a job, don't exceed two pages, focus on the experience that is most similar to that of a clerk or to what is being mentioned in the position's ad. The essential information to write in the resume is: contact data (with full name, home address, phone number), the goal (refers here to the purpose of the resume), work experience (position held, company name and period), education and references. If you don't want to provide the references in the resume, you can mention instead that you'll provide them if asked.
The next resume is just a guide so feel free to customize it to your situation.
