An Executive Resume without an objective has no focus or sense of direction. As we have previously stated it is vital that your resume conveys a sense of purpose to your prospective employer.
An employer must be aware of your intentions therefore it is vital you state your objective clearly and succinctly. Ensure you verbalise the exact role for which you are applying. Following through on this your resume must then demonstrate your ability to perform this role taking into consideration your valuable experience and expertise.
An objective must be a statement of intent.
Examples are as follows:
Dynamic, award winning career reflecting pioneering expertise in consultative sales and marketing of telecommunications network infrastructure equipment and services seeking a position where the above skills and experience may be fully utilized and further developed.
An innovative and seasoned Senior Executive and Consultant with a successful background in crisis resolution, turnaround and start-up situations seeking a position where more than 15 years of successful progressive experience in all phases of Strategic Planning, Operations and Financial Management can be utilised to the benefit of an organization.
Corporate Finance Executive and troubleshooting specialist with a command of operations, organization and management and with expert competence in financial planning and analysis seeking a position where these skills can assist in the development of a start-up company such as ABC Ltd.
A statement such as this will immediately capture the interest and attention of your prospective employer encouraging them to explore your resume further.
It is important to note that it is the intention of a well-written objective to gain the interest of the prospective employer and generate interest in the content of the resume thus increasing the candidate’s chances of being called for interview.
