An objective for mechanical technician resume is like a handshake – an introduction to who you are and what you are here for. Writing an objective on a resume was not the norm until quite recently. What changed? Perhaps the fact that resumes would open abruptly and provide detailed information that hiring managers were not yet ready to receive.
It is true that hiring managers want to know a lot about the person that they might hire, but when you present information in a manner that can only be considered terse, you cannot expect it to bring results. In fact, it actually has the opposite effect. A hiring manager needs to be wooed carefully so that he agrees to read the rest of the resume with as much interest as he showed, when he picked up the first resume of the day. And this is only possible if a proper introduction is made.
The introduction in this case is the resume objective. Once the hiring manager knows what your name is (and where you live), he or she must be familiarized with what you can do. While you have the entire resume and the cover letter to present this information to an employer, the resume objective will provide a wider, yet precise view of it. You will be surprised to know how many employers depend highly on this part of the resume to choose an employee.
