Either way, they are definitely not a new trend in the US, at least. OTOH, I would NOT recommend a personal branding statement, so what does that guy know? :P I don't know if they are falling out of favor, but certainly they don't seem to be considered as critical as they used to be.

Well, I used to see them all the time when I was hiring. In the past 4 years, not so much. Also, when I was looking, I would try to leave it off and I would have recruiters insist on putting one on. That hasn't happened in the past 3 years. Plus, the two "professional" resume writers I worked with didn't put them on but did the whole SUMMARY thing instead.

I put "professional" in quotes because I have to say I was very unimpressed with them overall. They did some good things for my resume but they also had no idea what I did and that was clear in how they structured things, some stuff they emphasized, and how they worded things. They just slung words around and it showed.
