Search String: “Objective Lines on Resumes”
Things people type into google that somehow land them at my site: “Objective Lines on Resumes” and also “Game Design Resume Objective”.

Industry experienced game designer seeks position as a Y…”
And that Y better be something that the company you’re applying to is actually offering a job in.
If you have specific skills, or awards, you can put them in there, too.
Industry experienced and award winning game designer with programming skills seeks position as a Y…”
What if you’re not industry experienced?
Aspiring X designer with programming skills seeks position as an intern within an established development team.
Don’t lift that and dump it right into your resume, though. Personalize it some.
