Writing an objective on a recreation coordinator’s resume is not always important. But where it is, it is important to write one that serves your purpose well.
When exactly can / should we use a resume objective?
There are actually only two instances where resume objectives become a necessity – in an entry-level resume and in one in which the candidate intends to change his career.
So what purpose do resume objectives serve?
In today’s competitive world, employers have very little time (and even less patience) to determine what a candidate is capable of doing for them.
An employer who has advertised for three different positions will be able to categorize resumes easily if the first line (the resume objective) makes it obvious what the resume is for.
A recreation coordinator resume objective summarizes the skills, qualifications, and experience of a candidate in a few lines, giving the employer an eyeful of all that is “good about the candidate”.
It is a foolproof way of grabbing the employer’s attention and keeping it!
However, resume objectives need to be very carefully crafted – according to the job that one is applying for. For instance, a recreation coordinator’s resume objective should be along the lines of:
