    Objective/Summary

    Spend as much time on this section as necessary to create a powerful opening for your resume.
    Your Objective or Summary should be two or three lines long at most.

    Don’t talk about yourself and your career goals. You can do that in the interview.
    Avoid such phrases as: "seeking a chance for advancement", or "where my skills will be utilized", or "where I can further my career".

    Your goal is to focus on the employer and his or her needs.
    See our resume templates for help.

    An Objective or Summary can be a sticking point for some people.
    They want a resume that gives them enough flexibility to apply for any job that might even remotely match their skills and experience.

    As we saw earlier, you must focus on the job you want.
    You must tell employers what job you can do, not force them to think of a job that might suit you.

    Second in importance (and order) is the Profile section.
