Career Services Resume Qualifications


How do I develop an effective Summary of Qualifications/Profile/Skills Section

  • This is where you showcase for the employer what you have to offer. Keep in mind what the job entails.
  • You won't put every single skill, experience, or attribute you possess here; instead, focus on what you can do to successfully perform the job.
  • Tailor this section to reflect what the employer is seeking. Different positions will warrant that you create different qualifications sections.
  • These are brief statements of your experience, training and/or personal abilities which summarize your skills, abilities and experience.
  • Qualifications are more experience-based whereas Profiles are more personal attributes
  • Complete a Job Duty/Task Analysis worksheet for each job you've held and activity with which you are or were involved.
  • Refer to the lists you prepared earlier in the workshop from past jobs and activities.
