My last grad school application question- promise! On my resume I have changed my typical objective and can’t get the wording quite right. I am applying to the Linguistically Diverse Education program, so that in my every day classroom I can serve these students more efficently. Here is my objective, what do you bee’s think
Objective: Looking to continue my education, in Linguistically diverse education, to maximize student opportunity and success

I would honestly just take it out. I never had my objective on there and I got into all 5 graduate programs wo which I applied. It’s just really not necessary. I don’t even use an objective for jobs anymore and I got a job within a month of graduating from graduate school. Good luck!

kaysix6la– have you ever had anyone comment on not having an objective?

and one other question- do I need to put references with my resume since I will already have letters of recommendation?

I don’t have an objective either and got into law school and was offered three different jobs since then. No one has ever asked.
If you are including the recommendation letters with the application, I think you can nix them from the resume. If they are sent in seperately, include them.

I agree, an objective is repetative of your cover letter or your application. You are stating the obvious.
Its generally recommended now to replace it with a “summary” or “summary of qualifiations: An “elevator pitch” of your most relevant skills/experiences.

No I’ve never been asked about it but I have heard what a PP said about adding a summary of qualifications. I probably would have added one of those “elevator pitches” if I was searching for jobs a little longer. As for references, I wouldn’t add them especially for a graduate school application. If you have to have letters of recommendation it’s a moot point.
