RESUME OBJECTIVE FOR FRESHERS: SAMPLE EXAMPLESJuly 27th, 2009 Posted by VFreshers
You might wonder – what is the purpose behind an objective statement in your resume.
The resume objective is the very first thing that the employer reads about you. It conveys to him your employment goal in a short crisp sentence of town. It is a powerful statement with a punch that tells the employer why they should hire you and what value addition you will bring to them.
An employer quickly scans the objective statement to see if it interests him and then goes ahead with the rest of the resume. If the objective is not eye catching and attention grabbing then he might just move on to another resume.
The objective statement will open doors for you. It will be able to enchant the employer in to reading your resume further. If worded well enough it will be like the magical key for you.
The objective statement tries and sells your skills to the employer in the shortest time possible. A good clear and specific objective statement will certainly help you to move ahead in the interview chain.
Ensure that your objective is specific to the job that you are seeking. If it is too generic then change it to meet the needs of that specific position.
Make certain that your objective statement allows the employer to peep into your brand of motivation, initiative and qualifications suited for the position.
Try and add the company’s name that you are applying to in the objective. This will certainly mean changing the objective statement for all the resumes but it will be worthwhile for sure.
Mention the job title in the objective statement. Clearly emphasize what you can do for the company and the benefits that you will bring along with you.
Less is more. Do not go overboard with words.
