When a potential employer is reviewing a massive pile of resumes, it’s easy for him or her to make a quick decision based on just a few factors. Although you may have impressive skills and valuable relevant experience, if your resume doesn’t catch an employer’s eye, he may not read far enough to notice these things. To increase your chances of being noticed and snagging an interview you should include a career objective on your resume that will catch an employer’s eye.

Including a career objective is a great way to get noticed, but you also have to make sure it’s good. Many hopeful employees are tempted to fill their career objective up with flashy adjectives like “driven” or “dedicated.” While these traits are certainly great to have, your career objective is your chance to prove your worth to an employer and a long list of flashy adjectives doesn’t prove very much.

writing a career objective

Think about it from an employer’s perspective. If she receives 100 resumes and all of the applicants claim to have “excellent leadership skills” she’s probably not going to pay much attention to that claim. If everybody is describing themselves the same way, then nobody will stand out. Instead of telling an employer you have great skills, show them.

Write a career objective that is specific to your experience or to the role for which you’re applying. Have you worked in sales? If so, incorporate that information into your objective. For example:

“Sales professional with experience increasing regional profits by 30% during the 2015-2016 fiscal year.”

A statement like this does more than just tell your employer you have skills, it shows them exactly what those skills can mean when applied to a real life context.

What should you do if you don’t have work experience to incorporate into a career objective?

State your skills

In this case, it’s probably best to skip the career objective altogether. Instead of trying to fill a career objective with empty adjectives about what you might do, include a “Skills” section on your resume where you can highlight your unique skills that will be specifically applicable to this job.

career objective, skills, work skills

How to enter your skills on your Assist to Hire Profile

On the Assist To Hire website we have added a skills section to help you with this process. Just login to your employee profile and then update your page with your skills that will make you more marketable to the employers you are interested in working for. Another great tip is to add skills that are easily quantifiable such as skills with Microsoft Excel or Peachtree. By incorporating skills that are unique to you and specifically applicable to the job you’re applying for, you’ll show a potential employer that you’re both capable and prepared for the role.

Unemployed? Don’t Be Passive, Be Active

Unemployed? Don’t Be Passive, Be Active

Finding a new job is never an easy task, and in today’s ever changing environment, companies can sometimes be hesitant to take the plunge on a new employee. But if you find yourself out of work don’t wallow in your despair. Instead, take advantage of the resource you do have available: time. While you shouldn’t give up on actively searching for full time work, here are some suggestions for possible endeavors that could earn you some quick cash and beef up your resume.

Start Your Own Small Business

While starting a business can seem like a daunting task, with careful planning and conservative budgeting it can be manageable. Before venturing out into your own enterprise you should do your research, and be sure that you’re ready to embrace the responsibilities of owning your own company. If you think you’ve got what it takes, then roadside food trucks, freelance web designing, or tailoring are just a few of many options that could be good for you.

Polish Your Writing Skills

Good writing is key to almost any field, and touting your writing abilities will make you a more attractive candidate to employers everywhere. One easy way to develop your own writing is to read. If you know what field you’d like to work in, then try reading magazines or journals about that topic. Not only will you pick up on stylistic nuances and keywords that you can include in your writing, but you’ll also impress your potential boss with your knowledge of the industry.


While a dynamite resume is key to landing any job, without connections you may employed lagos nigerianever find the opportunities your looking for. You can meet people just about anywhere, from a gym you frequent to a local park. Or, if you have a friend in an industry that interests you, ask him or her to sit down with you over coffee and talk about their experience. At the end of your meeting, ask your friend for one or two contacts and then ask to meet with them. Slowly, your network will get bigger and bigger and an opportunity will come your way.

Have Realistic Standards

Everyone dreams of getting a high paying job in their industry of interest right off the bat. But in reality, it rarely happens that way. Don’t be afraid to take a lower paying position or even a part-time job if it’s going to provide you with valuable experience. You can then leverage that position and those skills for more lucrative opportunities in the future.

Learn Something New

Employers are always looking for candidates who can be flexible and adaptable. New skills, especially skills that other candidates in your field may not possess can be a great way to set yourself apart. If you’re in marketing, consider learning some computer programming. A varied resume will always be more impressive than a narrow one.

Graduate operates an open air restaurant in Anambra

2017 Career Goals/Motivation: Graduate operates an open air restaurant in Anambra

We begin the year with a truly inspiring story shared by Facebook user, Timothy Motivator Ofoegbu. The story took place when he stopped for a bite to eat at an open air mini restaurant inside a bus park at Ihiala, Anambra.


Running the mini restaurant was Chijioke, who also happens to be the cook. Better known as Nwa South, he was a young university graduate who was deported from South Africa. Instead of brooding over his situation and searching for endless jobs, he flipped the tables by directing his passion in cooking into his restaurant. Serving delicious and inexpensive food for as low as 200 naira, he serves between 250 to 300 people each day.


No doubt that the story of Nwa South and his thriving business is a story that brings warmth and hope to us. A point to remembers is when the going gets tough, we ought to take it as a motivation for us to escalate our efforts in making our dreams, into realities. Persevere through the storm and focus on improving your life, and the life of those around you.
