Here’s another infographic with a couple of well designed suggestions for your resume.
Guys from The Wall Street Journal did mostly a good job, but there is a couple of points I disagree with.
First, Objective section. By no means, everybody should ditch it. It just don’t belong in a modern resume. It says nothing about why a company should hire you. What it says is what you want and employer is not a Genie from Aladdin’s lamp.
Always have in mind that your resume is a marketing brochure about your skills and accomplishments. Would you expect Coca Cola to talk about their targeted net annual profit in their advertisement? No? Well, you shouldn’t talk about your goals either.

Another point I strongly disagree is putting any notion of references in your resume. It’s understood that you have them. Don’t waste precious resume’s real estate on understood information.
