You could state that you want to contribute something magnificent to a
company greatly in need of it. Of course you'd want to put it in tech
writer terms, but the idea is to make what you want compatible with what
the "buyer" wants. Even in traditional sales, presumably you want to make a
sale to someone who can really benefit from what you're selling -- then
it's win-win. Likewise with skill matching. Maybe you want to reinforce the
professional image of a company by producing world-class product user
documentation... or some such thing.

So... since the objective is typically an "I want" statement, what
should you use instead? Or should you eliminate the objective
