3rd Technique

Career Objective using 3 parties

You, Career Goal and Company

3 party technique is similar to 2 parties with the Company as an additional party

In this technique you will additional mention about the Company or Role You are applying for

Are you thinking - In 3 party technique, I need to change Company Information in career objective

every time you apply for a new company

I know you may not want to modify

company information everytime

But, You can personalise career objective when you are applying for your dream company which is more special to you

Otherwise, You can stick to common company properties as

domain like, banking, IT, finance etc

or role you are applying for - like junior, mid level, senior or manager

Let's see some examples

Freshers can only show education, internship as prospects to the company

Skill and experience-wise Fresher is mostly blank

Company will invest and train that individual to make him/her professional

You gain more experience with every year passing and the company’s expectation also changes

With Experience - the company is expecting that you already have skills mentioned in the Job description

So Experience candidate is good to start without much training time
