What is your objective? To get a job, you say? That is about right. However, that is not how you can make your wants obvious to an employer. When you write a resume, you cannot simply state “Hey, there! I am looking for a job and I think you can give me one!” A bit too cheeky! But something has to be written on a resume to make sure that you say something which is similar but with a little decorum. This is where a deputy sheriff resume objective comes in.
Begin your resume with a sentence spanning a couple of lines, that says that you are a qualified individual and would like to provide the benefits of these qualifications to an employer. The tone needs to be professional and the choice of words must be impeccable. Remember that you have only a couple of sentences to say what you want to so use this space wisely. Do not sound selfish – the job may bring you stability and a pay check but you do not want the employer to feel that you want to work only because you will benefit from it.
While resume objectives do not follow a specific format, you may want a few examples to decide how to write them, especially if you are writing a resume objective for the first time. Here are a few examples:
