A traditional resume summary is a descriptive bullet-list section to summarize your key information at the beginning of your resume. It should be short, targeted and easy to read. After reading your summary, hiring managers should be able to answer two questions: “What have you done” and “What can you do”. Resume summary also be called “Qualification summary” or “Competencies”, it has only one purpose – Let hiring managers recognize you in the shortest time. Still remember that six-second rule? Most people would like to first read those generalized tabular content in a limited time, that where resume summary comes into play. Though it sounds a bit ironic, a well-written resume summary could double the chance you get hired, even help you beat those job seekers who have richer backgrounds.
