    Problem with objectives nowadays is that about 50% HR & recruiters like them and 50% of HR & recruiters find that an objective is redundant and “outdated”. Instead–many are now recommending that you place a “profile” where the objective should have been unless it’s a career change that you are seeking. Another problem with objectives is more often than not they pigeon hole someone into a specific job.

    If you come across a resume, and he or she does not the right objective, but at the same time has a good job history along with great statistics, you should take the time to talk to them and learn about them. If they are a good fit, coach them on how the resume should be written so that the client would notice that their resume is marketable.

    Maybe I am just biased since I am a Technical Recruiter, but resumes without objectives does not necessarily mean that he/she is selling themselves short. We all know that the #1 objective is to get a job. We all know that us Recruiters work for our clients, and our job is to find them top tier candidates. It does not matter if you are Glen Gary Glen Ross or Gordan Gekko, if you apply online, I will ignore you. Most of the top talent are passively looking.

    This is very helpful. If I am a very good salesman, and have good numbers to back up, is that enough to just jump industries into the medical sales field? Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    As a sales manager this video makes me want to bypass using a recruiter. You can’t honestly tell me that you would pass on motivated and potentially successful sales reps just because YOU don’t like the format of their resume. I guess it’s a good thing I’m in a different industry. I can’t tell if this is supposed to be helpful or if it’s a plug for a resume writing service.
