My 5 tips to write a great summary:


  1. Write short paragraphs. Don’t use big blocks of chunky text.
  2. Whatever you do write, make sure it’s grammatically correct and pay attention to the punctuation.
  3. Make it easy to read and engaging.
  4. Mention who you are, what you have done, what you specialise in and what your goal/s are.
  5. Mix it up with some dot points if you can.
