Target Job Title

I have been revising resumes for countless professionals in several different industries, and even with the highest paid managers, I've noticed one missing element... listing a target job title.

Typically, I notice the name, objective, then the summary of qualifications. First of all, you shouldn't be using an objective (unless you are entry-level, which I talk more about here. Second, your target job title immediately tells the hiring manager who you are. Instead of wasting space with a meaningless objective, just list your job title and go straight to your qualifications statement.

A few examples:

  • Certified Pharmacy Technician
  • Senior Marketing Associate
  • Director of Business Development
  • Program Manager

If you are unsure of your title, but established in a particular field, try listing out your competencies right away like this:

  • Office Management | Human Resources | Executive Team Assistance
  • Account Management | Sales Consultation | Partner Development

This second option also works for career changers or those re-joining the workforce after a long leave.
