Resume for Consulting Position

Many engineering companies are outsourcing work that was formerly handled in-house. Payrolls are shrinking, but there are more consulting opportunities out there. If you would prefer a full-time job, but are willing to accept consulting as a way to get your foot in the door, how would you structure your resume?

Create a job objective statement that says you want to be a consultant (e.g., "Job Objective: Software Engineer Consultant") or one that indicates that you're open to consulting or full-time employment (e.g., "Job Objective: Software Engineer or Consulting Software Engineer").
