Objective

This is optional. Typically, your resume is accompanied by a cover letter that explains what position you are applying for, your goals, and how this position is a good match for your skills and experience. But if you send your resume without a cover letter, a succinct Objective will help orient the reader.

An Objective is a brief statement that identifies the type of position you seek. Here are two examples:

  • Objective: Position working with young children in a multicultural education setting.
  • Objective: Production Assistant position with a film company.
