Here’s a sample resume with a professional title instead of a job objective statement, as described in the Step 5: State a Job Objective.
Why a Professional Title is Better Than a Job Objective
In the case of this sample functional resume, the job seeker is well established in his field as a Construction Dispute Consultant. He has earned the right to call himself by that title because he’s been doing it for so many years.
By using a professional title instead of a job objective statement, he presents himself with greater authority and at a higher pay grade. That is, he’s not a wanna-be, he is a Construction Dispute Consultant. That’s a much more confident stance for negotiating a job title and salary.
