Purpose: To use whenever a shorter, more succinct version of your resume might be appropriate (such as at networking meetings or for your networking contacts)
Quick Tips for Writing a Networking Resume:
The above documents are sample networking resumes. A networking resume is a document that is useful to have and use in addition to your full resume. Page length is an area of confusion to many people. The most important factor is that you use only as many pages necessary to convince the reader that you are an ideal candidate. Every word and element must have a purpose. Two pages are generally expected for an experienced candidate (and three pages, in some cases). The ability to present your qualifications on two (or three) pages demonstrates your ability to communicate clearly and focus on the relevant. If your writing is concise and your achievements compelling, and three pages are required to present your key qualifying skills and achievements, use three pages. Just remember that with each page you reduce the chances that the resume will be read thoroughly. On the other hand, a one-page resume (known as a networking or summary resume) can be useful in some situations…especially at networking meetings. While this summary document wouldn’t take the place of your more complete resume, it is an important “tool” to have in your career marketing portfolio, to use as a leave-behind at interviews or to hand out when a more lengthy resume might be awkward.
