Questions to ask Yourself:

  • What are my Qualifications for the Job?
  • What are my Skills and Strengths?
  • What Goals do I have for my Profession?

They want to know what you are going to do for THEM and what you are GOOD at doing. They want someone who knows what they want, and one who can deliver what the Company is asking for.

If you State Your Objectives in the Resume, and say that you are looking for a Challenging Job to Use your Special Skills in, This may be too General a Statement.

In the Resume

  • Include your unique experience, and match this with what they are looking for. Forget stating your NEEDS and your own agenda, for the time being.
  • Be sure that your Objective written in your Resume does not limit your Job Options.
  • Focus on what you are going to bring to the employer and his company.
  • Do not be Vague, or talk in Generalities when writing your Resume Objectives.
  • An objective will guide the employer in understanding what job you are applying for.
