An objective is kind of a sales pitch.
Use it to sell yourself to the company, let them know what you can do for them. Research "sample resume objectives". Try to keep it short and sweet. Everything else, it should be on a coverletter (coverletters should be no more than 2 pages, resume 1). OH! and dont forget to direct it to the specific career field, or generalize it. No more than 1 sentence, if you can help it. A good laid out resume, cant always get you the job.
A well done resume, coverletter, references, porfolio (if needed), and confident interview. Dress professionaly at ANY interview, even if they wear jeans, it lets them know you'll take your job seriously, and shows your professionalism.
Try this: when turning in the resume/coverletter (only), DONT put: porfolio and references upon request. Let them ask for it. BUT do have them with you.
And always, be confident about yourself and abilities. Dress professionaly even when calling about jobs. If you are in your underware, its as if they could tell.
I had a 1 day turn around from being R.I.F. (Reduction in force) from a job, to getting hired on to a new one.
Hope that helps. (a little more than you needed/asked for)
By the way this is what my resume objective says:
OBJECTIVE: To obtain a drafting or graphic design position where I can contribute my creative, observant, computer, quick learning, and leadership skills.
It has been ok'd by multiple colleges and Utah employment center career service people.Last edited by Navian; 12-07-2005, 10:39 PM.
