Professional Resume Summary

Career Summaries are the single most effective tool for establishing the reader’s perception of who you are based upon your current objectives. It is this section that allows you to paint the picture you want someone to see as they review your experience and your fit within their organization.

A Career Summary is a brief section that highlights your skills, qualifications, knowledge and achievements, and is designed to give a quick overview of your career history. The Resume Summary can be written in a paragraph, as a bulleted list of items, or any combination thereof. In essence, you take your entire professional career and consolidate it into a 1-2 page resume. Now, take the resume and consolidate into an inch or two at the top - your Summary.
