Excellent examples of cover letters, résumés, etc. From MICA.

Excerpts from recent emails about career objectives on résumé:

I see that FSU tells you how to write a career objective (http://www.career.fsu.edu/employment/career-objective-guide.html) but then doesn’t include it in their examples (http://www.career.fsu.edu/Images/PDFS/Guides/WritingAResume.pdf)
But none of the résumés in the MICA internship guide (link above) have career objectives.

Just nosing around…

Yes to career objective or summary…

(career service office describes it, but then none of recent graduates use it!)
