Time to slash the crud off your resume
CareerBuilder says too many resumes are filled with fluff.
First to go, the "Objective" statement--a job that uses my skills to make you money, yackety-blah.
If anything put a condensed elevator pitch--your unique offerings.
Forget the "references available on request" thing. They know that.
Outdated or nonspecific info should go--try to stick to jobs in the last 10 yrs.
No picture--unless you are an actor or model. Also the height/weight/good health thing is over with.
If your education was in the past--meaning FAR in the past--put it last. It a Harvard degree is your main selling point, put education first.
Think...slash...prune...change it up.
