The dilemma that surrounds the need for resume objectives and the redundancy thereof is something that is talked about many times. While some employers believe that an objective statement on a resume is an optional section, we beg to differ. Objectives tell an employer in just one precise sentence about a prospective employee’s aim and how s/he can help the district. If written precisely, this one line statement can give you better results than a long profile.
Since most of Teacher Assistant resumes begin with an objective, it is important to write a targeted and compelling objective statement to hit the target and make a good first impression. Objectives should not be self centered; you cannot write in an objective that you want a particular job because it will help you climb the success ladder through the school.
Use WWH (Where – What – How) principle while writing an objective statement; Where you want to get a job, What can you bring to the employer and How can you utilize your abilities to contribute to the mission of employer.
Take a look at some examples of workable objective statements for a Teacher Assistant Resume:
• Seeking a Teacher Assistant position with Learning Alliance using skills in managing classroom activities, supporting lead teacher and performing secretarial tasks to create an effective and healthy classroom environment.
• Looking for a position as a Teacher Assistant at ABC School where strong dedication, superb clerical skills and teaching experience will be utilized to develop the children physically and emotionally.
• To obtain a position as an Assistant Teacher at Dallas Independent School District utilizing diverse experience in assisting teachers, and ability to perform supportive tasks to get the best results and ensure the success of the district.
These three objectives seems quite generic, but, can do the trick. They make the employer aware of a candidate’s aspirations in educating children by assisting the teacher and make obvious the fact that some skills and experience has are being offered, thereby motivating the employer to read further and invite the applicant in an interview. Teacher Assistant Resume objectives are usually used to summarize a candidate’s aspirations and should be used as they make one heck of a marketing tool!
