Creating or revising your resume can be a daunting task. Resumes are often the best and only way to market yourself when applying for a job. It’s your foot in the door. That being said, we believe an amazing Summary of Qualifications is essential to getting noticed.
What is a Summary of Qualifications? It’s a great alternative to an “Objective Statement.” Truth be told, companies aren’t interested in your objective, they want to know what you can do for them. The Summary of Qualifications should be placed underneath the standard information included in the heading of your resume (name, contact info, linked in address, etc.).
What should you include in your Summary of Qualifications? Three things are important:
1. Results (professional or personal as long as it is related to the position for which you are applying)
2. Key skills (job specific)
3. Accomplishments (money saved, time saved, money earned)
