How should I write about "My Career Objective" in my resume? I just want to have a stable life, having a job,

get married and have my own family. I am not an aggressive person. (I am working in accounting field with uni degree and have a CPA status). Please help me with it, open for any suggestion. Joan Mershon, thanks for your answer. Why should we "get rid of the sentense - a challenging job utilized .....skills"? What's wrong having this sentense on the career ojective?

"Objective" is an out-of-fashion term on resumes.

Be short and specific. Tell them what job you want.

I don't think every resume requires a Career Objective. But if you know there's a certain type of work you want to do, or a certain kind of company you want to work for (like a large corporation, a small- to medium-size company), a specific location you're looking for, then I'd include that.

That "have a stable life, get married, have a family" stuff....do NOT put that as your objective. Think of it as an opportunty to impress. Lie if you have to. Tell them the opposite of what you really want, because if you tell them the truth, you can forget that job.
