Write a compelling objective statement for your resume

A resume is the first impression of the candidate. Make sure to include a resume objective as it is an introduction on your behalf.           

Remember these key pointers before crafting an objective for your resume.

Keep it precise and clear: The longer you keep it the more employers will lose interest in reading it. Keep it short yet strong, it would make it easy for hiring managers to go through it and understand the key pointers. Avoid using “the” and “like” to keep the employer focused on the most important parts.

Customize it according to the position or role: As you have different outfits for different occasions similarly, always remember to tailor your objective to the job you are applying for.        

Read the job description well and highlight your skills and interests specific to it, this way the employer is more likely to read your resume further. 

Mention your strongest attributes: You can also add strengths that are not only relevant to the job role but also strengths that you are proud to let them know. For example: “dedicated and experienced”, “organized and self-driven”, “motivated and result-oriented”, etc.

Specify how you will provide value as an employee: The most important that an employer is looking for is a candidate who will add value to the organization or in other words who could be an asset to an organization. Clearly stating your value proposition will increase your chances of getting hired.
