Tailor Your Resume Objective

Tailor Your Resume Objective

Tailor Your Resume Objective Copyright Alison Doyle
Some job seekers choose to include an objective on their resume, rather than including it in the body of their cover letter. It's optional, but including a resume objective can convince employers that you know what you want and are familiar with the job, the industry, and the company.

If you include an objective on your resume, it's important to tailor the resume objective to match the job you are applying for. The more specific you are, the better chance you have of being considered for the job you are interested in.
