Professional objective

A commercial function in a pharmaceutical company that values a research background.

The professional objective or goal section is optional. It indicates

  • the field you'd like to work in
  • what kind of job you would like
  • which skills you'd use for that job

Especially in the case of unsolicited applications, this section contains a lot of necessary information for potential employers. This section is less appropriate in the case of solicited applications.

It is a good idea to distinguish between short-term goals and long-term ones. Also try to find a balance between general and specific objectives.

An example:




A function that allows me to use my skills and interests to grow to a function with more responsibilities.


To develop technical training programmes for administrative and commercial employees.
