How to Make a Project List Resume

by Kara Page; Updated September 26, 2017
As a project manager, your resume should focus on a list of your successful projects.

For engineers, construction managers, and any workers who manage or participate in major projects as part of their career, a project list resume is essential when searching for a new job. Rather than focusing on your previous jobs at specific companies as you would in a work experience resume, a project list resume features all of the projects you have been a part of. This type of resume should also include your education information as well as a list of skills.

Step 1

Write your "Summary" section, which is a short summary explaining who you are, what experiences you have and what type of project you are interested in pursuing.

Step 2

Write your "Experience" section, which is essentially your project list. Begin with the most current project you worked on and move backward chronologically. Include the name and type of project, the company or organization the project was for, the location (if applicable), your title as a project worker, and the dates you worked on the project. Write a short list of three to five duties you were responsible for beneath each project, such as "developed regional plan" or "managed project budget."

Step 3

Write your "Employment History" section, which is a brief list of all companies you have worked for in reverse chronological order, along with dates of employment. Because your responsibilities and titles are already listed in the "Experience section," there is no need to include that information again in this section.

Step 4

Write your "Education" section, listing any degrees you hold, the name of the institution, the field of study and the date you received the degree.

Step 5

Write your "Skills" section and list any relevant skills you have that are not indicated in your project list such as mastery of specific computer software or languages you are fluent in.
