Much like the resume summary, a resume objective serves to open a resume with a bang.
Through an objective, you can clearly and effectively communicate your work prowess and skills to a hiring manager, who is eager to jump at the chance of hiring the right person for the job.
However, this can only be done if you know what you are writing, and do not resort to odd tactics to impress the hiring manager.
Always remember that the resume objective needs to be short. You cannot write a paragraph over a paragraph of content, explaining why you are an excellent choice to hire.
Leave this work to the cover letter. In an objective, give a teaser of your abilities and competencies. Make sure that whatever information you provide in the cover letter can be later verified in the resume.
So if you have written that you are skilled in records keeping, make sure it corresponds with some point in the rest of the resume as well. Competition for all open positions is tough nowadays, making it difficult for candidates to highlight themselves correctly.
The trick is to make sure that you put information in your objective that is important to hiring managers. Remember that the objective “opens” your resume, and it needs to be perfect.
