One of the most divisive things I’ve seen when it comes to advice on a resume is whether or not to have an objective section.
I used to be on the side that said Yes. In fact, until about a year ago, I included it on my resume, which means that I was hired into my current job with the objective section intact.
But, I’ve since changed my mind.
I think having an Objective is nice but I don’t think it’s necessary. I bet if you interviewed 100 HR representatives and hiring managers, none would tell you that they decided on a hire because of a great Objective section.
