Resume Objective for those who actually hire

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi and good day 
I hope this is a ok place to post this since im looking for the reaspons from Chef's that do the hiring i hope you can help me 

I am rebuilding my Resume 

and im having trouble deciding about the Objective of my Resume 
i have had 2 chefs tell me that when they used to do hiring back in the 90s when they had there own kitchens they ran 
That the first thing they would look at was the Objective and it always had to be eye catching 

the Career service Department at school is telling me make it short and sweet 1 sentence She is a Chef also the one who told me that 
So i am a bit conflicted so i figured iw ould come to here and hope that 
Those who have or do hire people can let me know what they thing about this 

Should i just use the basic one that sounds like this 


To Obtaein a Position in a the Culinary Field where i can better my skills and learn more in the Industry .----  That is the one that Career services is telling me i should use 


is that something that you would pass up on because its not eye catching and its to impersonal and generic ? 

 

thanks

Fix the typos. Typos are pretty much no calls.
Generic sucks.
You are opening a dialogue so you better have some "current" knowledge and dietarily guidelines will get a good laugh. Be honest.

oh my Resume won't have any typos i might miss something here and there when typing or just really have trouble with spelling 
I have a friend who is a English Teacher who proof reads my Resumes and other important things for me 

i am not great with spelling i have disability with it and with punctuation and grammar and i have no problem living with these issues neither do the people in my life

When I hire, I look for people who want to advance. The desire to move up means they'll stick around, which is important to me. An eye catching objective in the culinary field would look like this for me, "To obtain a position in a professional kitchen where I can use my current skills, and receive the training and guidance that will lead to my eventual advancement within the company."
