Resume Objective

Resume Objective : Whichever layout you decide on, make sure your CV is clear and easy to read.

Brian Lynch identifies his skills. :

Brian has identified his key skills and presented them as follows:

Key skills

Managing and supervising 50 staff on a regular basis and up to 200 on occasions

Liaising and consulting with senior management on matters relating to productivity and safe working practices

Motivating and inspiring colleagues to achieve optimum productivity whilst working to strict deadlines

Implementing health and safety regulations

Organising the development of staff over a three-shift system and being accountable for both productivity and work standards

Checking the performance and suitability of safety equipment


This is an excellent example of selling your skills, not just a job title. Reading these skills alone, it would be difficult to identify the industry Brian had worked in. This is exactly Brian's aim, as he seeks to demonstrate skills that would be relevant in a number of different industries. It is important that Brian can justify and expand on these points further at the interview. Statements such as motivating and inspiring colleagues and organising the deployment of staff are bound to elicit the response from the interviewer and how did you do that?

Clare Griffiths compiles a profile. :

Clare has now compiled a profile.


A well organised individual… used to working under pressure

Communicates well both in writing and orally and enjoys working with a wide range of people. Self motivated, with an outgoing personality and the determination to succeed.


This is a general profile that is not targeted to one specific area. It summarises Clare's personal attributes briefly, but does not indicate what experience Clare has. It will be important that the rest of the CV adds weight to the profile with some substance regarding her experience and achievements. Clare's personal qualities do, however, have relevance to a wide range of jobs, where communication, organisation and the ability to work with people are necessary. Clare's attributes, if they can be backed up, would be of interest to most readers.
