When applying for a social media manager position, you will need to highlight your knowledge of social media accounts, trends, and analytics on your resume. Present your previous experience in chronological order and provide details of your role in each position. Include specific details from the positions you have held which quantify your successes. Percentage increases in views, shares, and tweets will highlight your effectiveness and competence.

Match Your Resume to the Job

For each position you apply for, carefully read and take the time to analyze what the hiring manager is looking for in a strong candidate. Your resume should reflect your social media skills and experiences which most closely match the ones being sought for the particular job. Be sure to place your strongest qualifications first, followed by the also important, but less specifically related ones.

As you gain experience in your field, you will find it easier to tailor your resume for each opportunity you apply for. With each new position and accomplishment, you will have more material to interpret and select from to match to the requirements of a job. When you are less experienced, it’s important that you make the connection clear between what you have done, and how it relates to your qualifications for the position.  

Your cover letter can go into more detail about certain aspects of your resume.

Just make sure the information (dates, titles, etc.) matches up in both documents.
