Resume Writing & Cover Letter Questions


Should I mention a "construction career Objective" or "Professional Summary" in my construction resume?

Add Answer


I always recommend putting a "construction career Objective" at the heading of your construction resume. The reason for this is to show the construction employer you are looking for something specific, and have definite construction career goals. construction employers want to know that you understand what you are looking for and are not just exploring the marketplace. They want to know that what you want is what they have to offer. However, make sure the "construction career Objective" you put down in your construction resume describes the specific position you are applying for. If you are not sure then do not put a "construction career Objective" on your construction resume. The "Professional Summary" should be included in your cover letter only, and not stated on your construction resume. construction employers seldom read the summary statements, and it takes away valuable content space from the sections they are more likely to read. construction resumes are seldom completely read. In fact usually only the highlights or the first paragraph of a construction resume is read before a decision is made to continue the evaluation or move on to the next construction resume. construction resumes should be brief summaries in themselves that simply encourage the construction employer to contact you for more detailed information.
