From the article:
Yep, it’s time to refresh that resume, and to learn how to make your resume stand out from the hundreds.
If even the thought of glancing at your old CV makes you wince or shudder in agony, you’re not alone — we all have that summer job from the ‘90s that we’re embarrassed about showcasing on ours for too long. (For me, it was a month-long stint at T.C.B.Y., where my claim to fame was breaking the milkshake blender not once, but twice, in a single week.)
But you can do it! Take a deep breath, dig up the dusty doc, and resolve to give that resume a royal refresh this season.
We hit up some top HR pros for their best advice for job seekers. Here are their tips and tricks to recharge your resume and nab the new job of your dreams.
Write A Solid Summary
A summary statement is a short paragraph at the top of your resume that highlights your skills and experience.
“Since the summary is the first section that a hiring manager sees, you want it to make the most positive impression possible,” says Matthew Warzel, president of MJW Careers, a resume-writing firm. “This is a major part of your messaging — WOW them!”
“The summary should be made of 3-5 sentences, written in one paragraph, that capture the best of what you have to offer an employer,” Warzel explains. “Consider it your elevator pitch, or what you would say if you had 30 seconds to sell yourself for a job.”
