Solution: Forget about other career you have had in your life. Positive aspects, achieved goals and skills must be highlighted about same work field only.  

  1. Objective statements

Before writing down your main objectives you should point out that they must be connected with your willing work. Although some professionals think that description of your objectives is a waste of space.

  1. Humble description

Frankly speaking, everyone hates people that like boasting off. However, being too modest to describe all of your best sides won't give you any chance to be hired as a manager.

Solution: Try to include most of your awards and recognition, which you have received. This will increase the change to be a manager.
