My question is, when switching job titles, I've decided to use an objective rather than a summary...do I change the title from Professional Summary to Objective or just leave it as is, since it is kind of a combination of the two Thanks?

Is there any point in getting small qualifications that are unrelated to the job you're applying for and what does that tell the employer?

For example, is there any use to a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification specifically on a resume if you aren't applying for a job teaching English? Does it look any better on paper?
