Exclude the Objective and Summary Statements From Your Resume

We recommend that you do not include objective or summary statements in your resume. It's too easy for these to be generic or simply to repeat the content of your resume.

Instead of writing a short objective or summary, explain your motivation and benefits you can offer the new company in a separate document - a cover letter.

With a cover letter, you can explain targeted experience statements in the most compelling way. You can introduce yourself, explain your top achievements and share how your professional skills can help your future employer to get the results.

Since we recommend that you keep the content of your resume to one page, you should save space by excluding an objective and a summary. So, focus on your experience and skills sections instead.
