Edited by Hotelier, priya, Eng, Inukshuk
Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we'll begin discussing the resume or CV prepared for the United States. This looks different from a resume that is prepared for European, Asian and Middle Eastern countries in a few ways. We will be discussing the specifics of preparing your CV or resume for the United States. We will begin by discussing contact information, as well as objective statements.
- 8An objective statement will inform a potential employer, or anybody who is reviewing our resume, what skills we have as a general overview, and what we hope to gain by acquiring employment in this position. We may have several objective statements if we are applying to many different jobs. General wisdom says that we should not have a too broad and generic objective statement.
- 10With some experience, I have instead traded an objective statement for a single line that I personally call my "Professional Profile". We may also include an executive summary, which will also inform people of who we are. My own "Professional Profile" says that I am a hospitality professional with over seven years of customer experience in four and five star properties.
