The Short-and-Sweet Summary
I have over 15 years of experience working in data science. Currently, I work as Asana’s Senior Data Manager, improving products and services for our customers by using advanced analytics, standing up big-data analytical tools, creating and maintaining models, and onboarding compelling new data sets.
Previously, I was Chief Data Scientist at Guru, where I analyzed data from some of the biggest enterprise companies in the world to educate the market on long-term internet trends.
Competencies: data science, machine learning, cloud computing, Hadoop, Python/Java/R, network protocols
The short and sweet summary is a smart choice for professionals in conservative or technical industries. For example, if you’re a lawyer, you want to make it easy for people to see how long you’ve been practicing law, what your qualifications are, and the type of work you specialize in. (Plus, getting too creative might undermine your credibility.)
This also works for active job hunters. Why? It allows you to get a lot of keywords in, which will help advance you in the search results when a recruiter looks for someone who fits your profile.
Whatever the case, a short and sweet summary should include your current role, previous positions (if they’re relevant or notable), and your skills.
