The career objective section on your CV or resume is a highlight of your personality and who you are.

This is where the recruiter gets to see if your goals and aspirations aligns with that of the organization.

This is the reason why, you cannot just put in any information and think it will work across boars for all recruiters.

This section is like a personal advertisement section and it should be appealing enough to the sight and understanding of different potential employers.

Your career objective must be dynamic and flexible to fit different jobs. It has to be specific ti each job type that you apply for.

The objective should be focused on the employer’s needs; and, not the job seeker’s desires.

After all it is the employer whom is seeking to solve a problem or fulfill some business needs through your skill sets.

HOW TO WRITE YOUR CAREER OBJECTIVE

- Be specific on what kind of job or job environment that you are applying for.
- Assess and ask yourself what makes you a perfect match and candidate for the job in question.
- Make it straight to the point.
- Avoid ambiguous and vague words and phrases that have no meaning.

Some recruiters only check the vital information they need from the CVs especially when the applicants are numerous.
Re: How To Write The Perfect Career Objective For Your CV Before Sending It by nenergy(m): 8:07am On May 27, 2017
Career Objectives are outdated. Professional Profiles have taken over. A PP is a combination of your profile and objectives. Tell them who your are, what you've done and your aspirations. Simple!

It's good to write CVs. The most important tip I know of is to use action words.However, everyone has something unique to sell. Hence developing that side of yourself is the most important route to success.

Wrong. Career objective should be focused on both your needs and the employers need.

And what about me? Don't I have my own need to fulfil?
Every employee have their own personal problem to solve that is why they took time to learn a skill.

I can never write a career objective without stating what I want from the company too
