A statement at the top of your CV about who you are is one of your key selling points, especially when you may not have much experience. It is the first thing an employer reads and your opportunity to really grab their attention. Don’t just talk about what you’ve done before, talk about the person you are. What drives you? What motivates you? What exactly do you want to do? What career do you want to get into?
Also, as simple as it may sound, make sure that what you write in that profile summary reflects the job you’re going for. I’ve read CVs for a digital marketing role and the headline summary says: ‘I really want to get a job in politics’. So of course, that’s a no.
