Malcolm is a very professional resume expert. He responds to emails promptly and always finish everything on time.... Malcolm also gives me a lot of honest advices and support. He also asked a lot of mind-intrigued questions that give me a clearer view about my career path. Last but not least, he had been able to help me shorten my four-page resume to a career-focused with two pages only along with a wonderful cover letter.read more

After googling and researching different companies, I contacted Malcolm to re-write my very old and outdated resume.... Malcolm was quick to respond, gave me an upfront quote and got straight to work. Malcolm worked with me to come up with a professionally written resume that really highlighted my skills and experiences and a cover letter that specifically targeted the job I wanted to apply for. Malcolm has been friendly, professional and efficient. I highly recommend Malcolm from Resume Republic.read more

The high art of resume summaries

Sure, you can have a fantastic career history in your resume, which brings the house down but let me tell you a secret.

What recruiters read first is the Summary. If you’re at the top of you professional game, why not call it an Executive Summary. I do.

You might pay $300 to get your resume written or rewritten but the hard work, the stuff that a professional writer has to nut out is the summary. He or she has to incorporate all of your major skills and experience in to a couple of sentences, no more than 80 or 90 words long.

Think that’s easy? Have a crack at it yourself.

It’s not a conclusion. It’s a precis. A very different animal.

Because every person is different and every resume is different, summaries can’t be copied and pasted. They have to be original – which is beyond the capabilities of around 80 per cent of resume writers in Australia.

Here’s a good one:

“A future-focused senior manager with 20 years global experience in the utilities sector, including 13 years at SA Power Networks. Builds motivated teams and demonstrates world’s best practice in financial, project and risk management, while driving revenue growth. An organisational change leader who uses entrepreneurialism to problem-solve while ensuring win-win outcomes for clients.”

Here’s another:

“Major staff leadership, project and asset management wins in industrial, government and NGO sectors. Business strategist with excellent communication skills and problem solving capabilities. Recognised change driver revolutionising productivity through a dedicated focus on work planning and quality improvement.”

Sure, they have some things in common, apart from being rich in key words, but they arise naturally out of the resume. They are a product of demonstrated expertise.

That’s why I call writing resume summaries a ‘high art’.
