1. Write a winning resume summary/career objective

You can also use it to show to the hiring managers what you are looking for and what you expect from your potential new job. Try to make this section as perfect as possible as it will probably be the first thing the recruiters will read. After creating a perfect resume summary place it to the very top of your resume. The profile section of the resume above provides a great example of how to do it.
