Title refers to the title of the position you are seeking
or the title that you feel best represents your candidacy,
so long as it also fits within what the recruiter is looking
for. The title should be right after the header of the
resume and should be in bigger font. It should be the first
thing that the recruiter notices when he or she looks at
your resume. In addition to putting it in bigger font, most
resume writers will also bold and underline the title.
Once you have chosen the right title for your resume, you
can also add a small extra to it like a list of your areas
of expertise, a quote or a one-line “pitch”. This
additional information should be written in regular font
right below the title.
Following the title should be the summary of
qualifications. As is discussed further under the objective
section, the title and the summary of qualifications are now
the norm that most resume writers use.
Following is an insightful article from Megan Koehler, a
professional resume writer, on how to maximize the use of
the title on your resume:
