How To Use An Industry Specific Summary Resume Template
Create A Theme With Your Summary
When using a specific type of resume, use the job listing for the job you’re applying to as your guide.
Your professional summary should be a combination of the job title along with a sentence or two about your top skills or your years of experience in the industry.
Your summary should create a central theme to your resume that the other sections will support.
Using Technical Skills
Use job specific technical skills when listing your abilities in the skills section. The skills should be directly related to your professional summary above.
If you need to save room, you can remove space for skills if you don’t have many or make the skills go across three columns instead of two. This can be useful if you need to list more work experience.
Describing Work Experience
Describing your past employment is the payoff for the employer after looking at your skills and summary.
You should talk about your past work in terms of accomplishments – what you accomplished and how you used your skills & abilities to achieve goals.
Accomplishments aren’t always numbers driven, so think of creative ways to describe your daily tasks. What needed to be done every day? Every week? Every quarter? Match up your past employment with the new employers’ expectations.
