Some Bad Examples
The following are bad resume objective examples, the kind you want ot stay away from, because they can compromise your chances to get a job.
“Looking to work for a company with a warm environment and great pay."
This resume objective reveals practically nothing about you. You do not mention anything about your skills or working experience and you do not explain why you would possibly make a good match for the position you apply for. You generally state that you’re looking for a company to work for, without specifying the industry or the segment. In addition, you basically “ask" for a great pay without justifying why you possibly deserve it.
“Looking for an entry level position where I can utilize my strengths, with room for advancement."
This resume objective is extremely common. It not only does not provide any additional information about you, but also indicates the job seeker is seeking a position with room for advancement. Hiring managers expect to see that on your resume; by not giving them more information about your skills and competencies that match the specific position, you practically eliminate yourself as a suitable candidate.
“Looking for a challenging job."
This is an extremely vague resume objective. There are all sorts of challenging jobs in any industry, field or segment, but in order to get the position you’re looking for you have to be specific about your skills and what you can offer to the company. If you like challenge, you can include a statement “open to challenges," but only after providing information about your professional profile and working experience in a short and concise way.
“Looking for a position that allows me to fully utilize my skills and attributes and provides professional advancement opportunities."
This is possibly the most meaningless and inaccurate resume objective. There are no details about your skills and competencies, and you provide no information about what type of work you’re interested in or why you’re applying to the particular company.
