Before Writing a Resume You Need to Identify Your Main Career Goal

Think about your goal for a moment.

Is it a career advancement? Is it a short-term experience building? What are you searching for? What is your purpose without earning money? Finally, how can a particular company satisfy your big career goal?

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. Besides, stressing the goal can save you a ton of time and 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 section labeled "Goal" or "Summary". It is not a single sentence on your resume – it is an idea behind the words.

Start writing a resume only when you have identified your main career goal.
