When to include an objective section in your resume (and when to ditch it!)

By Bec | Changing Your Job or Career Path

A question that I am often asked is whether or not you should include an objective section in your resume. Personally, I am not a fan of including an objective – you might have heard me say before that it seems a little redundant, as most of the time, your objective is to get the role that you are applying for. There are some cases, however, when an objective section in your resume can help to communicate your story to a potential employer and these cases all revolve around change.

Don’t let the new year ruin your career

By Bec | Changing Your Job or Career Path , Confidence, Mindset and Behaviour

My values are the guiding principles by which I live my life. These are the rules I follow in my life, career and business to make sure that I am always being true to myself.

By Bec | Confidence, Mindset and Behaviour , Improving Your Current Career

I recently decided to review my values and really get clear about how I want them to show up in my career and business. Previously, I have tried to separate out my personal values and business values but since my business is me, I decided to define my values in a way that they can work cohesively across all areas of my life.

Hopefully this will provide you with some inspiration for choosing and defining your own values and finding ways to weave them into your work.
