Resume Example with a Headline and a Profile

The following is an example of a resume that includes both a headline and a profile. A headline (also known as a resume title) is a brief phrase that summarizes what makes you an ideal candidate.

resume profile also provides a summary of your value as a job candidate, but it is often longer. A resume profile is typically a small paragraph or a bulleted list of points. Including both in your resume provides even more information about you for the employer.
