Writing a Compelling Professional Summary


Sunday 10 October

17:00 GMT / 1:00 PM ET



The professional summary at the beginning of your CV is the first thing recruiters will read. In a few memorable sentences, a convincing summary highlights your relevant experience and background, describes your achievements and gives an insight into who you are as a person and what value you would bring to an organization.

When done correctly, professional summaries help your profile get noticed faster as recruiters will capture key words and make them more likely to give more attention to your CV as they have found what they are looking for at the top of the CV.

In this Career Development Workshop, our Career Coach in Residence, Iyad Uakob, will demonstrate how you can write a compelling professional summary and walk you through the dos and don’ts.
