by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2013
Over the past few weeks I’ve reviewed hundreds of resumes—and to my dismay, they’ve all looked and sounded the same. I’m not sure who thought it was a good idea to give job seekers the advice that replicating an unoriginal career summary or objective statement on their resume was a sound job searching practice.
