House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) returned to Capitol Hill last week for the first time since being shot in the hip at a Republican congressional baseball team practice in June. On the occasion of his return, Scalise recalled to Politico Magazine the harrowing moments after getting hit by the bullet: "I felt it … and I just went to the ground," he said. "I still had enough energy to start crawling — I'm crawling just to get away. And then my arms just gave out. And at that point, I'm just lying on the ground and I'm hearing gunfire. And so I just started praying. I mean, literally, just started praying. It was weird: I got almost an ease over me, because I felt like, you know what, there's nothing I can — I can't move. So I'm just going to pray to God and put in his hands."

Replace the objective statement with a brief profile or inventory of your related skills. Use friendly formatting and make sure your resume is well-proofread. Get feedback from peers before you seek it from employers. Use professional language and write accomplishments in an objective, measurable format. Include a cover letter with your resume and send a follow-up letter and thank you note.
