 Quick survey

LifeDoes anybody actually read the "Objective" section of a resume? More to the point, would they miss it if it weren't there?

My basic problem is that I've worked on so many different things in the past nine years that my Experience and Technologies sections alone are two pages of Arial 9pt. I don't think any potential employer wants to read past page two, despite my compelling prose, so I'm thinking about losing the objective.

Besides, the simplest, most honest "Objective" that I have right now is to make more damn money, but that comes up a little later in the hiring process.

Oooh! This is a good excuse to using the polling system!

    In academia the objective section doesn't exist, and I've only seen it about half the time in the non-profit world.

    Admittedly, academia and non-profits are very different, but..

    The only time I've ever used Objective is on Monster, where it's required.
