Managing an entire office is no simple task, and only a capable few make it there. Multitasking, good communication, and excellent supervisory and execution skills, are all necessary traits that describe a competent office manager. Such a professional has to take care of the operations of an entire office, from maintaining records, to hiring and training, and to solving employee problems. For someone who can handle all these intricacies of the job without buckling under pressure, this is a highly challenging and rewarding job. As such, when an office manager writes her/his resume, it is important that all these experience and skills are reflected in it.
As an office manager, it is likely that you have had a lot of work experience in the past. It is therefore important that only this experience be highlighted in the resume. There is no need to go into the details of your education and achievements outside the organization. Further, don't make the resume very long, and if possible, don't include minor jobs you may have done if you have better work experience. Include all your work experience but make sure it is relevant, with your current job holding top place, followed by jobs you have held previously in descending order.

If you have more experience than that mentioned above, ensure that you include it in the resume. Again, don't make it too long, as no one takes the time to go through very long resumes. Only very relevant details should be included. Keep your cover letter and other documents ready, to be provided whenever necessary.
