    What's wrong with having just one qualification and summarizing it?

    If you only have one qualification, why does it need to be summarized?

    That's a question for the resume holder.

    Skip the summary completely. Who ever came up with it should have to read all the bad "summaries" out there. Keep it short, sweet and to the point. Proof read instead of summarizing.
