Do you have an objective on your resume? If you do, you may find yourself changing your objective as the position that intrigues you has a slightly different position title than what you have on in your objective? Different companies use different position titles for similar positions.
I would not recommend using an objective on your resume since it is more geared to what you want rather than what an employer seeks. I recommend a career summary. It pulls together the types of your experiences, your skills and abilities, and may include a significant accomplishment and/or specific areas of expertise. The summary is an overview of what should invite the potential employer to read the rest of your resume.
On the other hand, if you are changing careers and trying to target a position that may not be obvious to the reader in reviewing your resume, then an objective may be helpful.
Since many resume templates include an objective many candidates feel they should include an objective in their resume. Do you use an objective? If yes, what is the value to you?
