Win the Hiring Managers Vote With Your Summary of Qualifications



12/7/2010 9:08:59 PM

There is a rule in journalism: put the most important, impactful, sensational content on the first page, “above the fold.” The same rule also applies to resumes: Sell yourself skillfully and effectively in the first half of the first page (because the Hiring Manager may not read the rest!) The Summary of Qualifications is your chance to summarize your solution to the Hiring Manager’s need, in 4 or 5 sentences, at the top of your resume. You don’t want to waste that opportunity with a lame SoQ. A brilliant Summary will probably get the HM to read the rest of your resume – and with a very positive attitude.
