Sample Resume Objectives from CareerRush: 

Writing Your Resume Objective:

Your resume object is the first thing on your resume, below your contact information. It is the statement, which can make or break your resume’s ability to help you acquire a phone or personal interview. Your goal within your resume objective should be to show an interest in long term employment with a company, but it must not be too specific. Basically, a resume objective informs the reader of the position you are seeking as well as one or two major details about the position you are seeking. For example, engineers are part of nearly any manufacturing environment, so an objective for an engineer, would identify his field and job market such as:

“Electrical Controls Engineer position for bioprocess or pharmaceutical manufacturing.”

Notice how this objective serves 2 purposes: 1.) It identifies the engineer’s job market. 2.) It utilizes industry keywords, which may be searched for in a job search engine.

The basic rule for writing your resume objective is to tailor it according to your needs. If you are posting a general resume to a job board, you may not want to be too specific. If you are applying for a specific position at a particular company, then you may want to tailor your resume objective to fit that position’s job description.
