The crucial details about you as a professional. The “About me” section is probably the most important part of your resume because it’s the first thing the recruiter sees. It should include your:
- Job title.
- Most significant professional accomplishments and key skills.
- The potential value for the employer.
Depending on where you are in your career, this section might come as a resume summary (1) or resume objective (2). For experienced candidates, write a summary and mention how long you’ve been doing this job. For entry-level positions or during a career shift, write an objective and say how working at that particular company aligns with your professional goals. Keep it brief and to the point (3–4 sentences), and don’t forget to tailor your resume to the position description.
