A resume Summary Statement is a short paragraph at the beginning of a resume that highlights a job seeker's professional skills and experience. It gives hiring managers a glimpse into the job seeker's expertise before diving into their resume.
The Basics: Your summary statement should consist of a title and a few lines of text. The text can be in paragraph form and/or use bullets. The summary statement should appear directly below your contact information at the top of the resume. and should reflect a general (or specific) idea of your career goals. A good resume summary, in a sentence or two, highlights some of your biggest achievements to date, mentions your profession and includes 1-2 of your top skills. For your resume summary to really stand out, though, it should also be tailored to the company's needs.
Do I need a summary on my resume 2020? Use a Summary Statement Instead of an Objective?

A summary statement, on the other hand, explains what value you can bring to them.
