By On Nov 28, 2017 Resume Format
Do you need an Objective? In my opinion NO! Objective statements are usually written in such general terms that they are useless. Who doesn’t want a position which is "challenging," or has "growth potential." Drop the objective and use this space to further describe your qualifications.
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."
In our culture people read from the top down and from left to right. So because the purpose of your resume is to be read, always keep this fact in mind as you write. For example, do not utilize valuable left margin space for dates, move dates to the right margin and use the left for information which will enhance your candidacy. Follow this theme throughout. Start by presenting the area which demonstrates your strongest qualifications. If your strength is your experience, or education or credentials or even volunteer experience; whatever, lead with it and proceed with the top to bottom concept. If your job title is more impressive than the company, list it first. Similarly, if your college is more impressive than the degree, then list it first.
