Professional Profile & Brand Statement

A professional profile, sometimes called a personal statement, is sort of like your elevator pitch.

It should describe your best attributes and accomplishments in a few lines, and basically give the hiring manager a quick look at why your resume is worth their time.

A personal statement, sometimes called a professional profile or career summary, is sort of like your elevator pitch.

According to Jaye Cherie

Career coach and author

“I tell people that it’s like painting a picture of how you fit into a company instead of leaving them to figure it out.”

“Job seekers should focus on their achievements and show that they have the qualities required for a specific job, such as "increased annual profit by 20%" or "managed a $1.5 million budget,” she explains.

Cherie also notes that this section should be adjusted for different positions and applications, because highlighting skills that aren’t relevant to the job in question may mean having the resume discarded.
