The Summary element of your resume will need to pack a punch in order to be most effective. It must contain the best about how and why you qualify for the job.
You’ll want the employer to focus in quickly on this section because it will highlight your most important accomplishments, talents, and qualities.
After reading your Summary, the employer must know, without any doubt, that you’re the best man or woman for the job. This is where you’ll shine! This will be your moment to really show your stuff. After reading this section, the employer must be compelled to read more!
Writing this section, you must use many colorful and descriptive words. If one of your best talents is sales, write that you are a gifted salesman, able to close the deal in record time!
If your talent is hairdressing, put down that your creations have been featured at XYZ hair show and that your technique is now copied in Salons throughout the Mid-West! You get the idea.
This section must only contain information about you which is commendable and that will set you apart from the crowd. Using the right kind of descriptive, complimentary words, you’ll achieve this handsomely. Your summary will show your prospective employer that you alone will be the best fit for the position needed.
