A Commodity Trader, or broker, purchases and sells products on the exchange markets. Depending on the specific commodity being traded, a Commodity Trader may require one or more licenses and registration. A Commodity Trader resume will often highlight such skills as soliciting new accounts, and buying and selling futures and options for clients on the exchange floor. Sample resumes for a Commodity Trader will typically include a Bachelor's degree at a minimum, as far as educational background is concerned, though it is also common to see both Master's and Doctorate degree-holders as well.
