hi guys welcome to professional

communication tips from the kiss Academy

and of course kiss stands for keep it

short simple and specific for more

effective results faster in this video

in the next two videos I'm going to show

you how to easily create a profile

statement for your resume now if you

need to know what the difference is

between an objective statement and a

profile statement take a look at my

previous video tip and you can find the

link in the description of this video

just below here so let's get started the

profile statement contains three parts

the first part briefly describes your

experience your education and your

skills and how they match to the job

that you are applying for part one can

be written in one short sentence and

this sentence contains three parts part

one very briefly introduces you so if

you have work experience you can begin

something like this a dedicated

professional or focused professional or

a reliable professional now dedicated

means you're loyal reliable means people

can depend on on you and focused means

you're goal-oriented you can use any of

these adjectives for new graduates you

can start your profile statement

something like this a recent graduate

with a diploma in business communication

or a recent graduate with a degree in

environmental engineering and if you're

still a student you can start something

like this a young professional working

towards a degree in Business

Administration or whatever you're

studying the second section of part 1 of

your profile statement includes just a

brief description of how much experience

you have so for example you might have

one year two years three years

experience or maybe three and a half or

one and a half in those cases say more

than one or more than 3 or 1 plus or 3

plus years experience so so far our part

one would sound something like this a

recent graduate from the Diploma in

business communications program with

more than one year experience in now

don't worry if you're still a student

and you don't have work experience

simply say a young professional working

towards a diploma in business

communication with experience in and now

we come to the third section of part one

and the third section includes a

description of what you have experienced

in now this is a very important part

because we want to make sure it matches

the type of job that you're applying for

so let's say you're applying for an

administrative assistant job it would

sound something like this a recent

graduate from the diploma and business

communications program with more than

one year experience in administration

and if you don't have that specific job

experience don't worry just list some of

the tasks or things that you have done

that are related to the type of job

think about the duties of an

administrative assistant think about the

skills that person needs to have and the

easiest way to find out is just look at

the job description every job

description will have a list of the

skills you require simply identify the

ones you have enlist them so you could

say something like a young professional

working towards a diploma in business

communication with experience in

scheduling organizing managing projects

and using Microsoft Office tools

this concludes part 1 of our profile

statement but wait don't go yet there is

homework I'd like you to write your part

one sentence of your profile statement

and post it below in the comments let's

see how many great examples we can see
