Resume/CV Profile

 

Disciplines > Job-finding > Resume / CV > Resume/CV Profile

Description | Example | Discussion | See also

 

Description

Start your resume/CV with a 'Profile' section (also known as 'Summary').

Customize

As this is the first section that will be read, take particular care with it and craft a different one for each application.

Attributes

Indicate some of your most impressive attributes, such as particular knowledge, skills, passion and energy.

Achievements

Summarize very briefly some of your key achievements that indicate your potential for the next employer.

Aspirations

At the end of the profile you may include a short sentence or phrase about what you are seeking. The rest of the profile leading up to this should make the aspiration seem reasonable.

Example

A specialist in digital audio electronics design with ten years at prestigious research labs, developing foundation of highly successful gestural control system. Now seeking operational experience in designing end-products with mainstream manufacturer.

Passionate Quality Programme manager with experience implementing Lean Six Sigma from scratch in two medium-sized manufacturers. Now looking for programme management in larger firm or director role in smaller firm. 

Discussion

The 'profile' section in a resume/CV is usually the first section and so needs particular care. If the person reading it is not impressed straight away and finds you to be a possible candidate, they are unlikely to read further.

If the profile is too wordy, the reader may well skip important parts. If it is too short, you may miss the opportunity to persuade. Find a balance where the reader can easily get through it within 30 seconds.

Making the profile stand out from the rest of the text can be helpful. This may be done, for example, with a dividing line after it or putting it in inside a box. Another subtle way is to use a slightly different (but matching) font or with a slightly larger font size.
