It seems that most résumés have a generic objective copied from one of many "how to write a résumé" articles. You know the kind; "To utilize and expand my skills in blah blah blah". I think that's lame. Why start your résumé with some vague cookie-cutter bullshit that you copy-and-paste then forget about? My objective is "To work on a project that users want to use and maintainers want to maintain.". It's nothing fancy but it's honest and to the point and I actually believe it. I'm glad when something I create is useful to others and they want to use it. I'm glad when someone, usually myself or a coworker, is able to extend or change it to do something else.
But not everyone wants those things. Recent experiences with clients who are more concerned with making sure the software looks like it works rather than actually works reminded me that working software is the primary measure of progress. Because of that, I updated my objective to say "To create working software that users want to use and maintainers want to maintain." Even more true and even more to the point. And that's something I care about.
What's your resume objective? Do you actually believe it and try to live up to it?
