    objective field in a resumé

    Hi could you guys check this sentence for me? It's supposed to be a part of the "objective" field in a resumé.

    A job in a dynamic environment, which will offer me the opportunity to get in touch with different tasks, problems and new technologies.

    I thought it was ok, but MSWord checking tool is marking it as a sentence to be revised.

    Word's grammar checker is simple-minded!

    The sentence is ok, but I would replace "to get in touch with" with "to benefit from encountering".

    Hi All

    Or perhaps 'to experience'

    Regards
