Get your Personal Summary spot-on

When you’re creating your profile, remember that you need to present yourself in the best possible light so you will stand out and get noticed by employers.  Here are our Top Tips for making sure your Personal Summary is the one that recruiters will notice:

  1. Identify and describe your 3 major strengths or characteristics.

  2. Mention key achievements in your career or life to date that make you stand out in a crowd.

  3. Include keywords that will help you get found in searches.

  4. Be wary of using buzzwords because employers are getting a bit fed up of hearing them (find out why…).

    Invest in your CV

    When you’ve dazzled prospective employers with your Personal Summary, they’ll want to dig deeper and look at your CV, so it’s essential that you make sure it doesn’t let you down.  Investing in your CV will pay huge dividends and isn’t something you should skimp on.  You can read our Top Tips for Writing Winning Aviation Industry CVs here.  If you haven’t read this blog post yet, make sure you do it today.  It’ll help you get your CV spot-on, to really improve your chances of being headhunted by these industry stars.

    Stay on top of your job alerts
