By On Apr 29, 2018 Resume Format
Sometimes, but rarely, an objective can be beneficial when applying for a certain position. By creating a targeted objective you can zero-in on one opportunity. But even then I would caution that this can be a self-limiting exercise. Because if the position has already been filled your specific objective may eliminate you from consideration for other opportunities which may exist and you are not aware of. Our advice is to stay away from an "objective statement."
We would encourage you to begin with notes and develop them into a rough draft. Think back over your experience and jot down highlights of your life, education and work experience. At this point don’t worry about the exact words or dates, concentrate on your accomplishments. As your record each positive point it should provide you with confidence to proceed.
How long should your Resume be? The "acceptable" length of a resume often creates a fair amount of discussion. Must my resume be only one page? Are three or even four pages too much? Again, a common sense approach should prevail. In most cases, a one-page resume is preferred, unless your qualifications are extensive. The more focused your document is, the more likely it will be read. Strive to never exceed 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pages. Remember your resume should not read like a job description. You do not need to recreate your entire past history. A resume should stress your qualifications, skills, and achievements instead of your duties and responsibilities.
