What makes an electronics technician resume stand out in one look? The way it begins. Resume summaries are provided at the top of the document to make sure that your basic job application document is welcomed with open arms.
Why do we need a summary to begin our resume?
Well, the summary sums up everything that you have mentioned in your resume, making it easy for a hiring manager to gauge if your resume is worth a read. Remember that many employers do not go beyond the summary when deciding if you are a good candidate. So make sure that your summary is in a league of its own.
A resume summary has two main elements – information of your accomplishments and / or skills, and relevance to the position for which you are applying. Do not go off tangent here. The information that you provide in a resume summary will go a long way in helping a hiring manager decide if you are interview material or not. And since the main purpose of you spending all that time on a resume is to get to the interview stage, it makes sense to put all your effort in creating a resume summary that the hiring manager can relate to.
