Identify Your Objectives and Your Audience
This critical step is too often overlooked. You
Your resume should clearly state your career objectives, but not necessarily with a designated career objective line. Instead, the content of your resume should convey the career objective. Too often old-fashioned career objectives were pure fluff. They were vague or did little to enhance the job seeker's qualifications or goals. Look through the samples in this book. When a sample resume includes a career objective line it is very targeted, meaning it clearly focuses on a specific field and, within that field, on a certain job function.
