An acceptable career objective should match your professional background, tell what you have currently and what you are looking for in purpose of career advancement. All in a sentence or two, not more.
You must also write in specifics, are you looking to work in a bank or NGO or an Insurance Company? Let the employer identify with you directly as a focused job seeker.
Remember the career objective is part of the profile summary and comes after your personal details, so you must impress the employer to read on.
How should a career objective read?
