A Personal Profile section on a CV is a personal choice whether to include on a CV or not however it is good to keep in mind that a Personal Profile can be powerful. I am sure you have now heard that an employer will be spending very little time looking at each CV that comes in for the jobs they advertise. If we think about where an employer’s eyes are drawn on a CV, it is at the top, under the Personal Details section, where you usually place a Personal Profile.
The Personal Profile is the place to briefly outline who you are and what you can offer and be the first chance to start to evidence that you are a match for the job you are applying for. If an employer can start to feel from here that you are a match to the role, they are more likely to continue looking over the rest of your CV.
