Professor Patty Cake ® Career Hack #102

Professor Patty Cake ® Career Hack # 102- We recently had a client ask us whether or not it is important to include an objective statement on her resume. This was our response to her- We typically leave objective statements off of resumes because most employers view them as "fluff," outdated, and think that they are redundant. In most cases, the applicant's objective is to obtain the position that he/she is applying for. Hence, that is why he/she is applying for the position in the first place.This is especially true in education because applicants are applying for a specific position that the school district has advertised. Here is a link to an article that shares our view of objective statements- USNews . 
We prefer to use the space traditionally used for objective statements to showcase succinct headers and/or well-written professional profiles/summaries, 1-2 short sentences summing up an applicant's qualifications. Do you have a well-written professional profile/summary? If not, contact Professor Patty Cake ® Consulting, L.L.C.  today to learn how we can help!
