Some resume experts believe including only a simple job title in your objective is better than writing a full statement. For example, these experts would suggest using "A position as a receptionist." rather than "A full-time position using my strong organization, office managment, and customer service skills as a receptionist for an established financial planning firm."

You can rename this section with an appropriate title. Some possible titles include Profile, Competencies, Professional Background, Accomplishments, or Areas of Strength.
