CollegeGrad.com presents "Your Resume Summary Section." Does your resume have a summary section? This video show you why you need one and what it should contain.
Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with CollegeGrad.com and this is The Job Search Minute. As you develop your resume, think about how you can maximize its impact, and the best way to maximize the impact is to provide a section which very few resumes include: the summary section. The summary section gives you the opportunity to very clearly state in 2-4 bullet points who you are, and what makes you unique. What is your value proposition to employers? How would you sell yourself in 2-4 quick statements? That’s what you should include in your summary. The summary works because many resume readers are not resume readers at all, they are resume scanners. If you put your key points in the summary section, it will turn a typical resume scanner into a resume reader who wants to know all your details.
