    I still don’t understand the rationale of including objective in one’s resume when you are already adding a cover letter with your CV. That’s the norm globally. In India, I admit, that cover letter is generally not asked for and so writing an objective statement becomes important. My point is if you are posting international opportunities then you should provide a template which reflects global trends and not just what the local companies accept. Another point is the length of the CV. It’s two pages here, but it is often recommended that as students with no prior work-ex or stellar research experience either one should restrict his/her resume to one page. Photographs are a strict no-no unless specified.

    As you rightly identified, an objective statement helps a reader get a quick sense on the candidate’s skills/current status and interests in absence of a cover letter and that is why its in there and one may exclude it if the cover letter/email is anyway being sent. The more important point on Objective statement is not to write vague/global statements which is even far more prevailing norm among students.

    Regarding length; these sections are ‘indicative’ meaning if you have anything worth mentioning, do mention else its not compulsory to write something in these sections for the sake of writing. The template runs in two pages because of the commentary added – in reality one should be able to do it in a page or 1.5 pages (btw there is no rigid rule on it necessarily being 1 page long only)

    And yes, Photographs are strict no and don’t think we have recommended that in the template.

    Also note that this template is just one of many possible templates and is meant to help beginners who have no clue.
