If you're in the Human Resources profession, you see lots of examples of long, boring job objective statements on applicants' resumes. You wouldn't mind those statements if they were really concise — not filled with useless "fluff."
But you're not interested in reading about how the job seeker wants "a challenging position" (who doesn't?) or seeks to "utilize his skills and experience" (what else would he use?) or any of the other obvious stuff people write to bulk up their objective statements.
So, now that you're writing your own resume for a Human Resources job, it's time to learn from others' mistakes! Don't write a long, boring resume job objective statement.
- Follow my guidelines for writing a concise job objective statement.
- Or, if you think you don't need an objective statement, be sure to you fit the profile for using an alternative to the job objective statement.
You'll notice that each of the examples of resume job objective statements on this page is no more than 10 words long. Many are just a few words. "Less is more" in this case because a short statement:
