Resume Objective Examples
Using A Job
Quite a few resume experts say DON'T EVEN bother with adding resume
objective examples. But then other experts say the job objective should
definitely be added as a required element on every resume that you
There is a great debate about this subject when one starts to search
the internet for some answers.
I will try to give you both sides of this argument as best that I can,
to if anything, help you to understand both points of view on should I
use the objective or should I not use it?
The Not So Good Viewpoint On
Using An Objective
Ask any resume expert in a forum, make sure you find one who doesn't
believe in utilizing job objective examples or for that matter any
objectives on resumes, why they don't like them, and they'll tell you
resume objectives are not good for the employer, they are only good for
your self ego.
In other words, the objective you put on your resume describes only
what you want it to say, so people usually fail to say or explain to
the employer how their goals will help the employer.
The company is really not interested in helping you to achieve
anything. What they want is someone who is going to help their company
and especially the department the employee will be working in, to
succeed. They are interested in what you can bring to the company,
personal goals are out.
Another problem could be that your objective will be limiting your
future. If you proclaim a statement in your objective you are only
interested in a specific job, then they may not even consider putting
you in a job you have passion for in the future.
Finally their opinion is, that most resume objectives are so off the
subject, that they are actually meaningless. So why waste the space
with something that (may harm) your goal of obtaining an interview?
There are some good arguments.

These resume objective examples show how a poorly written job objective
can do you more harm than it can good.

To work as an accountant where accuracy is greatly appreciated.
A job that challenges me. Challenge is my hobby and also my middle
name. I have always been looking for a challenging position.
The Good Viewpoint On Using An
There are also quite a few resume experts who strongly believe in using
resume objective examples or using your own that you created. These
experts point out the fact what an employer wants is to be able to
determine — within only seconds — what job you are applying for in the
company and what experience you bring with you.
They are also on the train of thought, that if you do not define a job
objective, that you really don't know what field of work is your
expertise that will benefit the company.
Resume objectives will also help to sharpen the focus of your resume.
When you do decide to use a resume objective example, you need to make
sure that it does not come off as all about you. Make it specific for
the position you are applying for, and make sure it is in the
organizations best interest, not your own. Demonstrate your skills and
experience to the organization.
