    @muotechguy I'd suggest it's too generic. Can you come up with a very specific 90 or 180 day deliverable? Pretend you were a consultant and promise to deliver a plan to cut expenses 10%, improve productivity 10%, and at least one "Ahhh Hah!" breakthrough. Money back guaranty?

    May I point out one nuance? On a resume, the author should not put THEIR objective on the resume. What they should put is something that recognizes the READER'S OBJECTIVE! What problems are you going to solve for the reader. Frankly, no one gives a hoot what the writer's objective is. Politely, that matters not. What value you will generate for the readers is what will determine if the resume stays in the running or goes to the trash can. AND, the write only has between 15 and 30 seconds make the point. imho.

      Objective: A challenging lead position with a growing technology firm where my talents and ambitions will make a contribution toward achieving my goals along with those of the company.
