You can find a lot of tips and tricks about how to write the most successful CV online, and most of it has already been said. In this post, we want to shed some light on the CV profile (some might call it the CV summary) and how to write it interesting and sensible.
First of all, you should try to put yourself in the position of the hiring manager. What are they looking for? What is part of the job and what of this have you already done? Write about the programmes you have used at your previous jobs. Let the manager know that you have not only experience in the sector (they can see that in your work history), but let your knowledge about the sector shine through.
When it comes to the summary, it is also important to write about the tasks you have done in your previous jobs. Be it report writing, or having done 1-2-1 sessions with your clients is as important as is your experience in working as a part of a larger team or even leading a team.
The summary is the first part of your CV, but you should wait to write it until you finished your work history. In the steps of your work history, you will already write down what exactly your knowledge, experience and skills are. When you have done this, you only have to take the most important skills, the ones that define your current status and will help in your future position best, and let them shine at the start of your CV.
