Addresses the most common issues regarding resumes. From time to time there will be an article written on trends concerning the resume, as well as articles pertaining to resumes and interviews.
Now that you know you need to have a resume and what it is for. After listing the job title you are applying for, this week I will address the Profile Summary. Some of the most commonly used names is Objective Statement, Summary, Profile Statement, Professional Summary, Executive Summary or Summary of Qualifications. Objective Statements have pretty much gone away and aren't used anymore.
Let’s take a look inside the Profile Summary and why do you have to have it.
The Profile Summary is where you connect your personality, with the mission and vision of the company you are applying for along with the position. You will need to look at the job description to see what type of person they are looking to hire. This is where you really let your greatest strengths in this role shine through, and should be highlighted here. You need to also state the number of years of experience; I like to do it this way. If the job description calls for 5 years of experience and you have 7 years of experience; I like to list, the years of experience as 5+ years of experience. I am doing this because once the computer scans your resume, it will highlight it and won’t throw it out.
The computer has an applicant tracking system on it and will highlight those words in the job description along with keywords. Thus, the reason for looking at the job description and looking at the mission and vision of the company you are applying to.
Once you have the job description, the mission and vision of the company, and your greatest strengths, along with your years of experience, then you are ready to write the Profile Summary.
An example of a profile should look like this: Focused and engaged management operations and customer support professional of 5+ years in strategic operations task planning and coordination and customer relations to ensure exceptional delivery of goals and objectives.
Proficient and energetic team player with strong ability to strategize and collaborate with multiple management and department teams to maximize operations and business initiatives.
Now that you have become enlightened to your Profile Summary, go ahead and try writing yours.
