Summary vs Objective on a Resume

News Flash: It’s not about what employers can do for you, it’s what you can do for the employer.

Did you know that Objectives on your resume may not help you? With the advent of software programs that can screen in or out applicants based on key words today’s job seeker needs to be very selective about what they say in their documents. Add in the plethora of candidates who may have similar or more impressive backgrounds and it is even more important that you do what you can to stand out from the crowd.

I recently found an article on the topic of writing a summary statement rather than an objective. It has really good points that make the case for changing it up a bit to bring out your “A +” game! Follow the link below.
