Professional Summary Resume Template

This is a Professional Summary Style Resume template. 

When building a resume, you can either include a resume summary or an objective, both of which are optional sections.

These sections provide two options to help explain why you are the ideal candidate for the job.

A summary highlights your previous work experience and explains how it can benefit the company where you want to work. Objectives describe your professional goals. Unlike the resume summary, you don’t include work experience when writing a resume objectives.  

There is a difference between a resume summary and a resume objective, and it’s important to know when to use each. Here's how to decide:

  • Do you have relevant work experience? Include a resume summary
  • Don’t have a lot of work experience in general or are switching careers? Include a resume objective
