Write a Resume Objective

An objective statement is a short summary with two to three sentences stating your experience, skills, and your qualifications. By writing your objective statement it improves your resume by pointing out your main qualifications and it shows what type of position you are seeking.

Don’t create a general statement have more than one resume objective available. You may want to distribute your resume to more than one organization tailored to the position available.

For ex.

A position allowing me to utilize my knowledge and qualifications in your company.

Think about what the reader is thinking right about now. What kind of position is this person seeking? What kind of qualifications can this person contribute to my company?

Be very detailed in writing your resume objective. Besides your name your objective is pretty much the first thing your reader will see, so make it pop out.

What is micromanage? To manage or control with excessive attention to minor details.

Does your boss takes over your assignments? Or you feel that you can’t fulfill any of your tasks at all because your boss controls every detail of it.

Bosses that micromanage all assignments leaving the employee without any room to showcase their work ethics or experiences can be difficult for an employee. There can be many factors why they micromanage it maybe they simply don’t trust you, he/she is probably under a lot of pressure from his/her superiors, or its his/her way of being. Most employers seem not to understand that they are driving their employees away by seeking other employment opportunities.

How to Invest in Yourself for Free

Invest your time in self learning online for free. You will not receive a degree nor a certificate the free online courses is basic knowledge for you to know. To have basic knowledge of a subject that you know nothing about and you are willing to learn it; is a very good thing, because then you can converse or write about the subject that you have learn to your colleagues or readers.

Everyday is a learning experience and if you can expand your mind to more knowledge, why not? I’ve learned various business courses online and I’m currently enroll in a few more courses one of them is called “Start-Up Basics for the First-Time Entrepreneur“. I’ve taken this course before about two years ago, but this particular one is up-to-date it’s basically a refresher course for me and the other courses are non-related to business, all for free. One of the non-related courses is digital photograhy, which I love. Once I feel comfortable in taking pictures I may incorporate this into my business, but for now I’m experimenting on taking pictures for my home.

How to submit a writing sample?

There are many writing jobs online and it’s tempting to apply as soon as you see it, but I urge you to be very careful when submitting a writing sample. We have many scammers out there in the virtual world. Submitting a writing sample without knowing the individual nor the company is probably your loss. They may have kept it and used it without you knowing.
