    Career Profile

    You can also call this section Professional Profile, Technical Skills (for programmers and other technical types), Highlights or Qualifications.

    Here you should include between four and six bulleted paragraphs that cover your best skills, as well as some of the best things you’ve ever done on the job.

    Reason? The goal of your resume is to get employers to call you. And the Profile section is a crucial method of achieving this goal.

    Example Profile section:


    PROFESSIONAL PROFILE
    Strong background in journalism, with firsthand knowledge of press community. Includes seven years of experience writing, editing and delivering on-air news and breaking stories.
    Superior verbal and written communication skills. Twice awarded by AP for reporting skills in 1998. Proven ability to balance needs of competing groups on controversial issues.
    Three years of business management experience as owner of small business. Gained press coverage, overhauled marketing, increased sales and sold for 100% profit (1990-1993).
    Cited for "considerable news judgment", by WXXX-TV GM, who said: "Joe is a well-organized self-starter (who) would make an outstanding employee in public relations".
    Another Profile section, this for an entry-level programmer:


    TECHNICAL SKILLS
    Operating Systems: Windows 95/98, UNIX on Sun SPARC and MS-DOS.
    Programming Languages: C, C++, HTML and JavaScript.
    Software: Microsoft FrontPage, Image Composer and Word; Lotus 1-2-3 and mSQL.
    Once you’ve written the Objective/Summary and Profile sections, you’ve finished the most important job.
    Your work is now half done!
