So why is this opening objective or statement so effective? Because it aligns your resume with effective business meetings that the reader has probably attended. They expect an agenda, a purpose to the meeting. So your resume can signal to them within seconds that you have a background of attending high-powered business meetings. You haven't started listing your job history yet, and already they are wanting that job history to back up the warm feeling that they have from your mission 'statement.' You see how it works? Much the same as how we 'buy' anything of value, we want it emotionally first and then use the facts to logically back up the decision we want to make. So functional resume samples, far from being the dry, tedious documents that that phrase suggests, are resumes that score an early emotional hit with the reader, and puts them in exactly the frame of mind that you want, before they ready their eighty fifth job history of the day!
You don't know where that resume sample's been. Yes, I know. I sound like I'm channeling a mother scolding a child to take that stick (or pencil, or shoe, or toilet plunger) out of his mouth. But sometimes, mothers know best. In the case of the free resume samples you might uncover on the internet, there's no telling how many times that text has been copied and pasted onto documents. In other words, you don't know where it's been. If a hiring manager has seen the exact same objective and summary language on six resumes that have come across his desk that morning, how do you think he'll react when he sees your document duplicating the same text all over again? Not favorably, I suspect.
You may find some resume samples that have bullet points. No employer will have the time (or patience) to read long paragraphs of text. Make sure, therefore, to use bullet points and short sentences to describe your experiences, educational background and professional objectives. One good way to format your resume is by using the keywords that appear in the job description of the position opened. This will definitely increase your chances of getting called in for that interview. By doing so, you have made it easier for hiring managers to do the elimination process.
