Your objective is always to secure the (job) with whatever (title) your applying for. That part is the simple part, the cover letter is a bitch. I just finished editing my resume and cover letters too.

Example:

Objective

To secure a full time position as a computer consultant at Microsoft.

You should never write a 'general' objective. It should always be job specific.

I had a professional write my resume for me. I wrote my own at first and hardly got any responses. Once I had a professional do it, I had all kinds of responses. Best money I ever spent...

Delux you should never add any objective because everyone knows that you want the job, it's redundancy and hiring manager don't like that. Instead polish your summary, describe relevant skills and personality that is beneficial to the company. If you could use specific figures do so. Don't use I and me statement and use action words once. Keep your resume template clean and professional.

Exactly. An objective will only be seen as unnecessary padding. It will be known what job you are applying for and your objectives after reading your cover letter which should state both those things.
