Resume: (Again) The Necessity of an Objective in Your Resume

By:  John Holmgren – TheExpertResumeWriter.com

Please include an “Objective” at the top of your resume!

I’ve talked about this before.  I bring it up again to emphasize its importance.

You want a job.  I (the hiring manager) advertise a job.  You apply for the job.

I or a HR rep get your resume, along with many others.  Many, many others!

Please understand this:

I  AM NOT LOOKING FOR YOU.  I AM ELIMINATING RESUMES!

Put yourself in my shoes for a moment. My first pass on an avalanch of resumes

is not to look for the all-star.  It is to reduce the pile to a manageable number.

What’s the first thing I look for?  What are you looking for!

If I need a Customer Service Representative and your resume’s Objective doesn’t

say Customer Service Representative, your resume is in the trash.

Sorry, but that’s how it works.  So,

Be absolutely sure to have an Objective at the very top of your paper.
