First of all, you need to understand what this section accomplishes. It acts as a hook to catch the attention of employers and naturally guide them into the next section. In the modern world of business, hiring managers reading your entire resume is not a guarantee. You need to earn that by capturing their attention and holding it through the end of the document.
To create a summary that really works effectively, follow these writing practices. Make the section brief. We usually recommend about three sentences. Mention your experiences, skills, and accomplishments to show a wide range of your abilities. This is also the only paragraph in your resume where you do not need to use complete sentences. Feel free to write however you need to so the information is concise, engaging, and appealing.
