Skills Summary Section

Once you've created your resume heading, you should begin to create the "Skills Summary" section of your resume. Since many hiring decision makers will quickly scan resumes when making hiring decisions, it's wise to put your most compelling skills or accomplishments here where they'll be noticed.

Here is an example of a summary section for a mid-career warehouse supervisor’s resume:
