STATEMENT OF PROFESSIONAL OBJECTIVE
Describe clearly and succinctly in one sentence why you are applying for the position, summarizing the type of position you are seeking, where you want to work, and what aspect of the field you are interested in.
Employers use summary statements to weed out the clueless from the savvy.
**Here are some examples, striking the right balance between breadth and specifics - **
- Seeking challenging position as computer programmer incorporating skills in artificial intelligence, machine learning and data mining.
- Desire position in management-consulting organization requiring outstanding verbal, analytical, and teamwork skills.
- Position as analytical chemist in semiconductor manufacturing company, specializing in transmission electron microscopy.
QUALIFICATION AND SUMMARY
In 2-3 bullet points, describe your most important qualifications that usually include the most important skills for the job you are applying to, years of experience, credentials or areas of specialization.
Mention in reverse chronological order Name of institution (PhD, master’s, bachelor’s), location of institution and year of graduation, department or major and academic honors (i.e., distinction), and any professional certificates or accreditation or minors
Don’t mention the titles of your theses (that might go in work experience but only if applicable), the name of your adviser, your GPA (if it is requested, often along with GRE/SAT scores; list it/them separately), and your high school
List three to five work experiences or jobs that highlight the set of skills that is most desirable to the employer, highlighting how you made a difference by citing specifics, and using quantifiable measures of what you did. For example, don’t just say you TA’d a lab section; tell employers that you “taught introductory laboratory chemistry to 23 students.
You should use action verbs in an active past or present tense. For example, rather than saying “was responsible for operation, maintenance, student training, and certification of users for x-ray fluorescence spectrometer, 1992-1995,” say “maintained and operated x-ray fluorescence spectrometer; trained and certified 44 students over 3 years.”
If you are just out of college with little work experience, you can write about something particularly notable in college. For example, I was the technical director of a theater on campus.
**To write your experiences, follow this format - *
Job title | Name of the organization | Location (city, state) of organization, and year of employment (nobody cares about months)
Something which is not covered already. For example, computer skills and foreign-language skills might come here.
WHAT NOT TO INCLUDE
Your hobbies, date of birth, your marital status, the number of children you have, and salary requirements.
Option, but highly effective if you have some great references. Mention about your reference’s full name, job title, place of employment, relationship to you, full address, phone number, and e-mail address
