I disagree about the objective line. Perhaps it's just a difference of industry, but when I hire for my team, I look for an objective. It can give you a glimpse into someone's long term goals, career interests, what they are looking for (Mid level, senior level, entry level), focus and even writing skills.
The objective is not just to "get the job," but to see if the company is a good match for you, as well. Remember, a resume just gets you noticed -an interview gets you the job.
Again, though, it could be different for the IT sector.
