Your professional summary is going to sell your resume. It introduces you to your potential employers as a professional. Your summary will show them what you can do and how long you have been doing it. What is in the professional works well, there are just some things that need to be added, including years of experience and maybe a few more sentence that sums up what you can do. Here is an example of a better professional summary. Wrong Summary Personable Legal Assistant who displays the utmost level of professionalism and confidentiality. Follows directives and employs all necessary steps to excel in high-pressure situations. Right Summary Personable Legal Assistant with 12 years of experience. Displays the utmost level of professionalism and confidentiality. Follows directives and employs all necessary steps to excel in high-pressure situations. Highly disciplined with a fantastic work ethic. Has an outstanding ability to think critically and a desire to learn and improve. Of course, you will tailor your professional summary to suit your own experience and goals, but this shows you how you can make it stronger and more appealing to potential employers.
Use Bullet Points
The next issue on this resume is the lack of bullet points. The highlights section is done with a bullet list, but nothing else in the resume is. Bullet lists should be used in every section to make the resume look clean, crisp and easy to read. Here is an example of how they can make the resume look better.

You can see how using bullet points makes the experience easy to read and follow. Your potential employers can glance right at the experience and know what your duties were.
Know What Information Stands Out
Accomplishments are always something that you want to tell employers, but your space on the resume could be better served elsewhere when you only have one accomplishment to list. If you have one accomplishment that pertains to your job, you could list that as a bullet point in your employment section. Instead, a skills section would be better use to the top of the resume. This resume should have a skills section between the summary and highlights section. Skills that show how well you work with others and perform will be useful. These should include skills such as:
