Everyone needs a resume.
Before you write, or re-write, your resume, what's the key consideration?
You have to ask yourself, "Am I writing this resume for me, or for the recruiter/hiring manager?"
This sounds like a silly question. Why would I write a resume for myself?
Probably 80 - 90% of the resumes I see are Vanity Resumes. They tell the reader a lot about why the resume's owner thinks they are great. They do not tell the reader why they should hire the resume's owner.
The first indicator of a Vanity Resume is an Objective Statement that looks something like this:
Vanity is all about the self, so count the number of times "I", "myself", "my" and "me" are used. Second, if you think this objective statement looks O.K., think about this: How does this help the hiring manager know that you are the ideal person for their key role? From a needs-based selling perspective, how does this so-called objective statement meet the needs of the reader? Finally, if you're not convinced yet, think about why this text could not be applied to everyone, so at minimum, it does nothing to differentiate yourself from any other candidate.
A better objective statement:
With this, the reader clearly knows what you've applied for, and possibly, how you'll help them.
