    • When Is a Formal Objective Required?

      Career changers and entry-level workers should consider incorporating their objectives into their resumes, because their goals may not be clearly defined by their work history alone. If you're targeting a particular position, add a formal objective statement and reference the job opening. The hiring manager will see you took time to customize your resume and that the opportunity is important to you.

      Resume Objective Examples

      For Career Changers: Accomplished administrator seeking to leverage extensive background in personnel management, recruitment, employee relations and benefits administration in an entry-level human resources position. Extremely motivated for career change goal and eager to contribute to a company's HR division.

      Entry-Level Workers: Dedicated CIS graduate pursuing a help-desk position.

      When Targeting a Specific Position: Elementary teacher for ABC School District.

      • Tips for Writing Your Own Objective Statement

        • Focus on how you would benefit the employer, not on how the employer would benefit you. Stay away from resume objectives that state your working preferences, such as "seeking a team-oriented environment that fosters professional development."
           
        • Don't be vague. Steer clear from statements that say nothing substantial about your career goal (e.g., "seeking a challenging position with potential for growth and advancement").
           
        • Keep it concise and targeted. Hiring managers often sort through hundreds to thousands of resumes to fill one job opening. Make it easy on them by keeping your objective short and to the point. The best resume objectives contain a desired job title or target.
           
        • If you have more than one career goal, create a different resume version for each objective. Remember, you can store up to five resumes on Monster.

  • [STUDY] Why Do People Use Instagram? on Apr 20, 12
    • The result is a surprising portrait of social media users who are not only engaged, but rather obsessed with how their images look.
    • Why do users share personal media content with global networks?
    • From the surveys, six key trends emerged: sharing, documentation, seeing, community, creativity and therapy. People wanted more than anything to exchange images with others throughout the network, find people with whom they had common interests, document the world around them and see provide "visual status updates" to their friends. A community evolved. People were excited about the visual social interaction, and used Instagram as a creative outlet. They also found Instagram to be, in some ways, rather therapeutic.
