Let's say "Dave" has three years of work experience in medical sales and wants a new job in the same field.

Old objective statement: "Highly motivated professional with excellent customer service skills and a strong ability to turn complex problems into solutions. Accomplished sales leader with a track record of success."

Again, the rub: Dave's objective statement could appear on anyone's résumé for any job. It's not specific to his career in medical sales and uses empty rhetoric ("accomplished sales leader"). Dave, don't TELL me you're "accomplished." SHOW me.

New objective statement: "Experienced medical sales professional who provides surgical supplies to hospitals throughout Georgia and South Carolina; manage 18 accounts and in 2014 grew sales totals 22% to $1.3 million."

For example, "Sarah" just graduated and wants a job at a nonprofit that raises money for inner-city youth programs.

Old objective statement: "Highly motivated professional who is energetic, driven and committed to success. Well-versed in all areas of communication and an accomplished leader among my peers."

Yuck, the adjectives are everywhere. Motivated, energetic, driven, well-versed, accomplished.

Is Sarah a 22-year-old college grad or the freaking Dalai Lama? Employers either see right through or look right past all the trumped-up language.

In a job application, don't run from who you are. Embrace it.

New objective statement: "Recent graduate passionate about improving the lives of disadvantaged children. In college, created "Swingsets for Stamford" and led a group of 16 students to build 14 playgrounds in underserved communities."

More here on the importance of quantifying your success.

Sarah never claims she's "motivated" and "driven." Oh no. She uses a tangible example to say "Hey, boss man. You better hire me because I can prove my value." Her "Swingsets for Stamford" experience also lends itself to great conversation in a job interview.
