We are Professional CV Writers in Dubai, and pride ourselves to be amongst the leading cv, résumé and cover letter writing service providers. I, Shabbir Kagalwala (professional résumé writer), will explain about the topic "OBJECTIVE".
Most people write an 'Objective' as a statement about their OWN Goals.
"To obtain a professional challenging position that meets my qualifications, and allows me to apply my skills and experience in order to grow both personally and professionally."
Sorry, dear. That's not what it's for! An Objective, due to the place it occupies, right on top of your CV, is a very powerful statement, to express your strongest skills. The skills that you want to achieve a job on. Now read this Objective:
"Qualified Business Management Graduate with 5 years of commendable success in spearheading an entire gamut of Onshore Operations & Maintenance, Budgeting & Inventory Control and overall Resource Management."
Did you see the difference? Well, it lays out the persons skills upfront. The recruiter / reader of this resume has no doubt what the person is qualified for. Definitely from the 2 Objective examples above, the second one will get called for an interview! That is what the CV is supposed to do anyway, right?
Here's one more example:
"I desire to join as an accountant in a company that has vision for growth and advancement. I have extensive years of experience and knowledge at senior capacities, which I believe would be an asset to an organization that aims for progress. In the long term, I aim to reach my full potential and further my growth with your team that will factor in the firm’s advancement."
I mean, come on...Which organization does not aim for growth and progress. Writing all this hype in your CV hurts you and you alone.
Get it now? The recruiter is employed by the firm to recruit for them. His / her sole motive being to recruit competent professionals having different skills that will help the firm achieve it's planned growth year over year, successfully. He / she is least interested in what 'your' personal and professional goals and objectives are.
Whether you want to become the director of a firm in 5 years time, or, the CEO in 10 years is not what matters to them. It is quite obvious that if you are competent enough, and, the firm meets it's goals, then your objectives will also be met over time. Hence, the said space should be effectively used to project what you can bring to the table, not the other way around.
