Objective in resume

I need help with mine. I am a housekeeper at a hospital, I have 2 years cleaning experience but I do not want to clean anymore so in my objective I'm trying to say that I want to go into another field, hopefully something clerical, but not sure how I should word it. I am bilingual and I do having typing skills so I wanted to include that in my objective too.

  • Your objective should be simple and related to the job you're applying for.

    Objective: To obtain a clerical position in an office setting.

    Based on the position your applying for you might choose "fast paced office setting" or "non-traditional office setting" to jazz it up a little.

  • Don't include your skills in the objective...if you want to highlight that stuff then do it in the cover letter.

    Dear Employer:

    I was excited to see your posting for ________________________. I have experience in (say how it would benefit the employer). I also have skill a, skill b, and skill c, making me a perfect candidate for the position.

  • Objectives are SO out of date. Instead, you may use a summary statement. I have an example posted here:
