The Professional Summary or Profile should be the first thing that a recruiter reads on your CV or Resume. It's designed to give a brief overview of you and highlight relevant core strengths that your future employers are looking for. After reading this section, the reader should find your application relevant and feel motivated to read on. This section has 2 components: A value proposition, including a job title, followed by 5 value-added strengths and when brought together make 1 paragraph. I typically write these so that they are 7-8 lines deep.
