Data Entry Clerk Resume Requirements

If you have a secretarial degree, then include that information on your data entry clerk resume. However, a college degree isn’t required for most entry-level positions. In addition, most employers will place more emphasis on the following characteristics:

Typing speed: Superior keyboarding skills are a must for this job.
Computer savvy: Include the names of computer programs that you’ve worked with in the past on your data entry clerk resume. Data entry clerks often use office systems like Microsoft Excel, so draw attention to anything that may make you stand out.
Precision: Companies base all of their pricing, promotions, and other key decisions on the information from their computer databases. Improperly transcribed numbers can cost them thousands of dollars, so potential employers are looking for people with meticulous attention to detail.
Independence: Data entry clerks often work in cubicles, so you need to be able to keep yourself on task.
