Information on Writing a  Chief Operating Officer Resume

A Chief Operating Officer (COO) resume can highlight various operational milestones, including re-engineering processes across supply chain and logistics, customer service, partnerships and distribution and support functions. Of note, the resume should touch upon the COO’s ability to keep abreast of market and industry trends and competitor movement in order to develop immediate short-term and long-range plans that create stakeholder value while ensuring the organization is providing a respected product in the marketplace.

As a resume writer, these are the achievements I pulled out of Gary during our consultation because it’s important for the reader to get a good grasp of his successes within a thirty second scan of his resume. In addition, Gary managed well-recognized brands and I showcased those to demonstrate to decision makers that he is someone who has had high-level responsibilities for Fortune 500 brands.  

Other areas I highlighted include: pricing and revenue management, capacity planning, budget planning, expense controls, and the development of strategic partnerships with consultants, vendors, and suppliers to ensure the smooth execution of contract agreements.

In some organizations, the COO is also the President and CEO, but if you work for an organization where others hold those titles, like Gary does, your resume should also focus on your experience designing and accomplishing objectives established by Executive Board members and executives of your organization.  

As you know, in order to achieve those milestones you have to evaluate the performance of departments within the organization. Specifically, you have to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the people and evaluate the way the department runs. The plans you put into place and the outcomes of each are the results a decision maker wants to read about.
