I get the idea behind an objective statement; I really do. You want the employer to know what your job search goal is. But the problem with objective statements is the way they’re written.

by Georgia Adamson - Jan, 2013
Have you ever had an interview that turned out later to be deceptive in one or more ways? Quite possibly, although I like to think that most interviewers do not deliberately deceive applicants.

by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2013
Are you running around with a virtual J (for job seeker) on your forehead?
