Keep Your Summary Short
When you write a summary, you want to include outstanding information that makes the hiring manager want to drag you in by your ears for an interview. However, you don’t want the summary to be too long. It should only be about 4-5 sentences that include your job title, your years of experience, and a few bits of important information. The summary in this sample resume has highlights in the summary. The highlights need to be listed with bullet lists in its own section. Here is an example of how it should be split up. Wrong Summary Operations Manager possessing comprehensive knowledge of project and production management techniques. Proactive in flagging and developing solutions for process inefficiencies and risks to product quality or project objectives. Natural leader driven to motivate teams to exceed business goals and targets while under pressure. Seeking to apply management talents to drive long-term company growth. Highlights Sales & Operational Planning; Budgeting/P&L New Product Introduction Management Technical Strategy Development – Process & Strategic planning Product Understanding and Improvement Six Sigma Certification – Continuous Improvement Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Regulations Strategies Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Cost reduction and containment Agency (MHRA) Regulations Teamwork and Interpersonal Skills Sound grasp of GMP concepts and requirements Building customer relationships Working knowledge of OSHA standards and process safety assessments Right Summary Operations Manager possessing comprehensive knowledge of project and production management techniques. Proactive in flagging and developing solutions for process inefficiencies and risks to product quality or project objectives. Natural leader driven to motivate teams to exceed business goals and targets while under pressure. Seeking to apply management talents to drive long-term company growth. Highlights
This clearly defines the highlights instead of overshadowing them in a professional summary that is so long, the hiring manager might throw it aside before he or she even finishes reading it. These highlights were difficult to distinguish from each other in paragraph form; but in these bullet lists, they are easy to read and understand.
List Your Skills
Along with the professional highlights, listing skills that pertain to more than certifications and the specialized job description is important. For example, list skills such as: exceptional communication skills, problem solving skills, ability to follow orders, problem solving skills, and organizational skills. Those type of skills should be listed in bullet lists under or above your highlights section.
Adding enough experience is extremely important, but you don’t want to add so much that it takes over your entire resume. You don’t need to give up all of the information on your resume. Write shorter bullet points and save the in-depth information for you interview. As long as you get the point across with what you did in your previous employment, the details only crowd the resume. Instead of: Interim Plant Manager November 2012 to February 2013
Write: Interim Plant Manager November 2012 to February 2013
