The debate about whether to write a summary in an operations analyst resume or not, will probably end when the world ends! There is this constant argument about choosing the right type of resume summary or just letting it go altogether. We suggest that you use one – after all, what harm can it possibly do? Actually, a resume summary does more good than harm, since it is an outline of what a candidate is, professional speaking. And which employer wouldn’t want to know what a candidate is all about in one short blurb?
Yes, a short paragraph is all that you need as a summary. Write a 5 sentence paragraph detailing all that you have done, skills that you possess and what your future aspirations are, and that is it! But how is it possible to put all this is 5 sentences? It is easy if you know exactly what it is that you have to write. Remember that you do not have to tell your life story in a resume summary. It is just a short outline of your professional existence, hence, it needs to be well, short and to the point.
