Before Writing Your Resume, Identify Your Career Goal
Think about your goal for a moment...
Will it advance your career? Is it to build a short-term experience? What are you searching for? What is your purpose, if it did not relate to earning money? How can a particular company satisfy it?
A clear career goal demonstrates your dedication to your profession and gives you a tool to evaluate your link with the company before pursuing a job. Stressing that goal can save you a ton of time and even make your resume more professional.
Your declared goal should resonate in every section of the resume but don't just write it as a single point in a field labeled "Goal" or "Summary". It is not merely a single sentence on your resume – it is an idea behind the words.
Again, only start writing your resume when you have identified your primary career goal.
