I find examples like this:

Dedicated management consultant with 12 years of experience around the world. Served over 100 clients with project values exceeding USD 200m total. Received “Consulting Falcon Award” for two consecutive years. Looking to continue my achievements with XXX.

Anyone has examples for less experienced candidates?

Hi,

It's amazing if it's yours.

If not ad you are less experienced - you can easily skip the headline. It's not mandatory

Best!

Hi,
it is only needed for 10+ year experienced candidates. Otherwise, your experiences will be easily got by your 1 page CV and in the cover letter you will have the chance to make an impactful short introduction about you.

Best,

Hello!

I would only do it if it´s going to look as impressive as that sample one.

If not, stick to the normal CV format and don´t loose space on this.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

Hello,

If you don't have a comparable experience I would skip the headline. You will have the time to tell your interviewer about yourself and your CV, there is no need to write down a summary.

Best,
Luca
