Hi fellow hubbers,
I am drawing a complete blank and could use a tip. I am applying for a Virtual Office position and need an objective for my resume.
I am trying to think of something creative, witty and not so everyday, yet respectful and appropriate for the position.
Unless they mandate it, you don't really need an objective on a resume. In this day and age, most everyone would put "to be employed and get paid".
That said, write something about looking for a position where you can fully utilize your expertise, knowledge and talents while learning a new industry/skill, etc.
A career objective varies depending on what an applicant wants to achieve in the future. If you are applying for a Virtual Office position, you should first evaluate if you want to apply for a staff or a junior management level. Below is an example of a career objective.
To achieve a Junior Management position in a business administration company wherein I can render my services and provide virtual/ online cross-functional support
I suggest you read my article on Finding the Right Job for additional guidelines.
I have an idea. Why not create a functional resume? It focuses mainly on your JOB SKILLS, not necessarily what jobs you've worked, but your skills pertaining to the job you are applying for. You can find a good example at the below site.
Thanks Tina V annd donotfear...I will be checking out both hub and link...again, have not looked for a job in 6 years was really hoping my writing would pick up, realistically...need to keep a roof over my head and food in the belly...thanks for the advise and am researching all.
You could go to a bookstore or a library and consult any of the resume/cover letter writing books. They are full of examples and you might find just the right one.
I would definitely add an objective because it gives the potential employer an idea of what you want (besides a pay that pays the bills). Be careful that the objective matches the job you are applying for.
As a long time resume reader, I was never interested in an applicant's objectives, I was always more enthused by whether that person could fulfil the objectives I placed on the position
I am resume writer and expert I write so many resume objectives for different profile resume objective is small statement but it is the the important part of candidate profile.
Resume objective should be written in such a way so that it could show your ability and skills. You can check on the web for examples of resume objective.
