there a right format?
No, there isn't. It all depends on your needs. There is no
"best" format for your resume. Usually, if you are
continuing along a proscribed career path (engineering, for
example), a reverse chronological resume is best. If, on the
other hand, you are changing careers, a skills/functional
resume will be more suitable.
How do I summarize my objective?
you start job-hunting, you should decide just what it is that
you have to sell to your prospective employer. Start by preparing
a qualifications summary, that is, describe your qualifications
that make you right for the job you want to get. Basically,
you're doing a self-appraisal. Everyone brings something unique
to a position. You will realize this uniqueness only after
you appraise yourself critically.
Do I really need an objective on my resume?
Yes. An objective is your five-second sales pitch. Use it
to hook the employer to read further. Be creative, but not
cute. An employer is looking for professional people to hire,
those that can fit a niche that has come open in the company.
If your objective fits that niche, you're on your way to an
recent graduate. Should I put my Grade Point Average in my
you should. Anything that makes you shine should be included,
along with awards, kudos and accolades. This is especially
useful for recent graduates just breaking into the work force.
