What is a Resume Objective?
A resume objective is a short, powerful statement at the top of your resume that tells the employer exactly how you will be of value to their organization.
Given that employers scan each resume at lightning speed before deciding whether to read on or not, the objective maximizes your opportunity to grab their attention in those precious seconds.
In short, it's an introduction that provides an instant sense of how you would fit into the advertised role. If it works properly, it will get your resume looked at more closely.
