In the past, it was common practice to begin your resume with a couple of sentences telling potential employers what you hoped to gain when working for their company. Today, an objective statement will date you. Instead, use a summary statement that shows off your best skills and gives hiring managers a good idea what value you have as an employee. When written correctly, this summary convinces hiring personnel to continue reading; think of it as an elevator pitch that showcases your potential.
As you write your summary statement, focus on a combination of hard and soft skills. Adjust your choices for each potential job. Employers today want to see a statement tailored to their company. You can do this with a selection of pertinent keywords, skills, and achievements. Refer to this document for more resume-writing tips.
