Next comes the Summary section. This is where you can shine in a few short sentences. Make sure to describe your most relevant achievements and skills. Mention your education if it is relevant. Above all, mention numbers. Preferably, profits or turnover you achieved. Remember what we said about why corporations exist? To profit!
But wait? What should I write if I have no experience and achievements and I apply for an entry or training position in the corporate world? Well, in this case, you should add an Objective section instead of a Summary. There you can describe what you want to achieve with your new job and how you intend to use your motivation to help the company.
Next is the Work Experience section. This is the essence of the resume. Try to be short and precise and show some numbers. List your experience in a reverse-chronological order starting with the most recent post. Include the name of the organization with a brief overview, its location, and your job title. Show the period of your employment by adding month and year. Use bullet points to present your duties and responsibilities through the prism of your accomplishments.
Make sure to leave no gaps in your work history or be prepared to explain it during the interview. If a position is not relevant, you worked there a very long time ago, it was in a different industry, or you only worked there for a short period you may not include it depending on the case. The other option is to include it but to exclude any details and list it just for the record.
After the Work Experience Section, you can place your Education section. Do not include your High School information if it is not relevant for the position. Start listing your degrees in reverse chronological order.
If you decide to use a two-column format, you can add your Achievements and Skills section just opposite the Education and Work Experience sections, aligned right. In this way, you can put emphasis on the most important information and present it right at the beginning of the document. You can use stylized icons in both sections. Use keywords and short phrases. Make sure to support the information you share in both sections with more details in the Job Experience and Education sections.
In the Achievements section, you could add not only job-related information, but also academic or other achievements that are relevant.
The same applies to the Skills section. You can list skills acquired on the job or through courses and education.
Do I need to include any Additional sections? We recommend you include a Languages section if you speak foreign languages. Languages are very useful in the corporate world. Especially if you work at an international corporation. A foreign language can open you the gates to lucrative positions abroad and make you a very prospective candidate for every organization.
In a corporate resume, you could also include more sections such as Certificates, Awards, Projects, etc.
