Looking at a new job. I can't do my current one anymore. I'm looking at positions within the company though. All the internal transfer require a resume attached. I'm not good at writing Resumes. I've never actually been hired with one. I was wondering if any of you out there could help me with mine. The main thing I am needing help with is the 'Objective' section. I think I have most of the other parts down.

I am going for an IT position, and a HR Clerical Position.

Here is what I currently have for my Resume (PDF Document). Note this is the one for the IT position I really want, and I'll take out the Skills section for the HR position. Any help will be wonderful. Thank you in advance.

What you have is barebones, but looks fine to me hon. As far as objective goes, maybe something like: "To make use of my job skills and personal knowledge in an IT or Clerical position to further the goals of the hiring company, and my own personal growth" or something along those lines?

Good Luck!

better yet, ditch the objective entirely. Most tech clients don't want to read an objective --- they want job experience, skills (listed by years used), and your certifications. Everyone, at their core, has the same objective: "I want your job, and I want your money." Why try to dress it up in pretty clothes?

Include a little "About myself," include where you've been challenged and overcome it in the past, times you've been given responsibility or taken control of a situation.

Also put what kind of things you want to achieve in this new position, is it for improving your skill set whilst working within a team, expanding your knowledge on things you already know, something else?

It looks a really good CV but I'm not really sure what you need to put on a internal CV, maybe ask the HR peebs and they can help most?

These kinds of achievements belong in your job experience. Showing you did something to solve a problem is fine and good, but what use is it to an employer if it doesn't happen on a job site? Make sure to list accomplishments at each job listed; that will assure that employers link your skills to your work experience.

your resume link is broken, but I wanted to offer help. See, I work as an HR recruiter for tech jobs and do this sort of makeover stuff _all day long_. Send me your resume in a PM and I'll see what I can do today.

And if that link doesn't work, go to the directory:;O=D
It should be the first one.
