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.”


This capabilities summary sample is just an example to show the quality and style of our work. Every job search document we write is different and the resumes that we write for you will be as unique as you are and customized and personalized to your needs.

My background is a particularly difficult one to handle in a resume both due to my having multi-functional and multi-industry experience, and my having had 9 positions in 25 years, none of which could be eliminated due to my having started my career at the mid-management level after graduate school. She can certainly do anyone's resume professionally and expertly, since she was able to write mine. Her questionnaire took a great deal of time but was critical in enabling her to do her work well. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay her is that before I hired her, I had just had my resume rewritten by another writer who has written a book on executive resumes, and that resume was not nearly the quality of her work, with an executive recruiter I know letting me know that her version was "MUCH better". My only reluctance in providing this testimonial is that it will encourage others to utilize her services, decreasing my "edge" over other candidates by having a resume prepared by Ms. Dumas.

(From a returning client who came back for an update) You are the best. That's why I came back for more. I needed the best you delivered the best.

I got this comment from an executive search firm that we are discussing an opportunity...“By the way, you have one of the sharpest resumes I’ve seen! The design is very professional and readable.

I wanted to get back with you and let you know that on Friday, I accepted a job for which I am very excited. I will start December 2, 2002 as the Vice President, Sales and Marketing for a company called XXXXXXX. They provide full service packages for XXXXXXXXX. I will also be the business unit manager for a new business they will launch in the coming months. Their services are based on providing the very best and comprehensive service at very competitive prices. It is a great opportunity to leverage my last 10 years in college and university relations and youth marketing. It is also located right here in XXXXX, about four miles from my house! There will be some international travel (very exciting) but there won't be the heavy domestic travel that I've had for the last 7+ years. And so I am now embarking on my first extended vacation since college. This feels like such a luxury. I want to sincerely thank you for all of your help through this process. The resume that you created was absolutely critical in my landing this position. I had more than a half a dozen interviews within weeks of circulating my resume, was a finalist for three positions and was offered two positions. The one that I accepted is without a doubt the best fit. I am truly thankful and feel very blessed to have had my search turn out this way. I hope all is well with you and I will continue to recommend your services very highly.
