|CV Writing Tips|
A good objective or personal statement on a CV or resume can be an affective way to get the hiring manager's attention. When writing your CV's career or resume objective statement you must consider the type of “job area” for which you are applying.
What "job area" are you applying for? What attracts your eye when you read the vacancy or appointments paper? This can become your career objective or statement whether it is a promotion, similar position, or change of career direction, you should decide to use one.
Your Career Statement can be used in the closing line of the profile section of your CV Curriculum Vitae or resume to give your reader a general idea of your area of expertise. This also takes away any risk, the reader may have in hiring you, as the recruitment process becomes mutually beneficial and that will communicate and high degree of staff retention, (this can be emphasized in your covering letter and at interview if there seems to be a skills deficit).
Career objectives can be a generalized within the Curriculum Vitae to a
given job area, unless you are absolutely definite about you specific job
target. You can find free
online. Here are some example
online. Here are some exampleprofiles and career statements.
Often the covering letter is the best place to be specific. In the letter you can personalize your objective for each job opening.
There is nothing wrong with using an objective statement on a Curriculum Vitae, as long as it does not limit your job choices. You can alter individual CVs personalized objectives that reflect the actual job title for which you are applying, but this is usually not recommended as it gives the impression of being too targeted.
It is best to give the impression that
you have just pulled the Curriculum Vitae out from the draw and wrote the
letter specifically to a given job. You should write the career statement
in the "third person" as if is a reference or testimonial to you (see
examples on our home page)
Do not mention the standard buzzwords / phrases regarding, communication
skills, interpersonal skills, or how reliable, enthusiastic, determined
you are or it will end up sounding the same as everybody else’s Curriculum
