A bland or objective resume could be preventing you from getting the jobs that you want. If your objective could just as easily apply to a job as an administrative assistant at it could to a network engineer then it is not fulfilling its purpose and it is not going to help you very much. It should not just be a practice in "job speak".
Your resume should be reflective of the kind of job that you are applying for. You should research the company where you are applying for a job so that you can tailor your objective to their needs. You should make sure that your objective is representative of who you are and it should be specific to the type of job that you want to get at the company where you are submitting your resume.
