Resume tip of the day:

Your Summary and Objective sections can help you as much as they can hurt you. Make those sections specifically relevant to the jobs to which you are applying. If you are considering more than one career path, consider making multiple versions of your resume, each with corresponding Summaries or Objectives.

For example, when searching for an administrative or executive assistant position, limit your top sections accordingly. Don’t try a shotgun approach that lists every type of job you might consider.

e.g. OBJECTIVE: “Looking for an administrative / executive assistant temporary or direct-hire position” is more effective than “Looking for administrative / executive assistant, marketing, advertising, or event-related positions.” Employers will likely get the impression that you’re not exactly sure which direction you’re headed and will overlook you as a serious candidate who may not be satisfied in the role long term.
