It’s true - objective statements are obsolete, but don’t give up that valuable resume real estate. A professional profile is necessary to create a powerful opening for your resume.
The profile should be short with 3 or so lines. Stay away from using objective statements, such as “seeking a chance for advancement”, “where my skills will be utilized”, or “where I can further my career”.
Instead summarize your career achievements and skills. State what is your profession; how many years of experience in your field; and what is your specialty – or what you are especially good at in your work.
"Office assistant with 6+ years of experience handling confidential tasks and efficiently managing day-to-day office tasks. Proven meeting coordination and interpersonal communication skills. Possess Technical Writing certification."
The professional profile cues the hiring manager into wanting to read the rest of your resume.

Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
