Capabilities Summary

Purpose: To use as an add-on to your resume

Quick Tips for Writing a Capabilities Summary or Profile Document:

The above is a sample capabilities summary to be used in addition to a resume. If you have data and information that you believe would be of interest to some recipients of your resume and not others, the solution might be to create a resume capabilities summary. This way you could send the summary to the interest recipients of your resume, but not to others. These summaries/profiles can also be used to really showcase an area of expertise. This particular client used the capabilities summary document in addition to a resume to land independent consulting jobs. Some people send the capabilities summary with the resume and others like to bring it with them to interviews to use as a “leave behind.”
