Career Objective - Advantages
- Categorized in: Resume Tips
Developing a functional career or professional objective for your resume provides several advantages:
Developing a functional career or professional objective forces you to think about what you want -- the particular type of position or positions you'll seek, the specaific skills or functions you wish to perform, the size or locations of companies you'll apply to.
A natural part of refining a career objective is thinking about your strengths -- skills and abilities you have, functions you've performed in jobs or activities -- and where and how you'd like to put these strengths to work.
Once you've developed your objective, that objective will help you focus the rest of the information you present in your resume.
Readers use this objective to match their needs with yours.
Note: Some fields, especially very competitive ones, do not encourage professional objectives in resumes. Mass communications and journalism are two examples. If you're unsure whether or not you should include an objective, ask a professional in your department or in the workplace.
