    usage and meaning of highlights

    Hi,

    Question:
    1) Is this a common and correct usage of “highlights” in a resume?
    2) what do you think about the meaning of highlight in my resume example?



    Background and situation:
    I saw an example of resume which has a “highlight section” at the beginning.



    Ie, write all selling points in the highlight section

    Eg,
    Highlights:
    30 years of experience in the US market.
    Awarded Best employee last year
    Skilled in …….


    Thanks

    Re: usage and meaning of highlights

    To 'highlight' means to give prominence or attention. State some special things about yourself or accomplishments in that area.
