Now that you’ve added your personal statement and key skills to your CV, it’s time to include your career summary. This is the section where you write about your work experiences.
The career summary is arguably the most important section of your CV. Here, you can showcase your achievements, demonstrate your competencies and draw attention to your key experiences.
How to structure your career summary?
1. Before writing about your experiences and achievements for each role, include your job title, company name, location of employment and dates of employment. One of the best formats for this is demonstrated in the operations management CV sample in this guide.
2. Following this, it’s usually beneficial to provide some context by including a sentence or two that describes your role. This helps hiring managers understand your role.
Here is an example:
'Managing all logistics operations within the EMEA region for this global manufacturer of agricultural and construction machinery, which has an annual turnover of over £500M.'
3. Then include your responsibilities and achievements. Focus on how you added value to your employer, rather than simply detailing what you did.
