Skip the objective. Objectives are outdated and rarely used in todayâ€™s world of professional resume writing. The purpose of the objective was to tell employers what you were seeking, i.e. â€œa challenging sales position.â€ Instead, the objective has now been replaced with a career profile or a summary of qualifications which tells employers exactly what you have to offer, i.e. â€œaccomplished professional with 10 years sales experience.â€ Your resume should include a concise yet quality career profile which clearly indicates what you have to offer, rather than just what you desire. Employers are far more attracted to a candidate who actually brings something to the table.
