A resume objective statement is a short paragraph often included at the top of a resume. It is used less often due to its many notable pitfalls. Even though it isn't used much nowadays, but an objective statement still has its purpose.

How to use a Resume career objective?

Check out the following components to include in your resume:

1. Career Field; Career fields are general areas of work that include many different job titles but encompass similar work activities. You may be considering several different job titles within a career field. Identifying the career field category allows you to specify a broad area in which you are interested without limiting yourself to specific job titles. While you may be interested in several career fields, it is better to limit yourself to one for purposes of the career objective.

2. Position Title; Position title, occupational title, or job title is the name of a specific position one holds. While some organizations may have their own reference names, most position titles are generic and generalizable to many organizations. Listing a position title on your career objective is appropriate if you know you will be applying for a specific position either in many different organizations or one targeted organization.

3. Organizational Category; Organizational category refers to settings in which you might like to work. In the broadest sense, organizations are categorized as either service-producing or goods-producing. More specifically, organizations are categorized by industry groups. One or more of these groups may appeal to you. Identifying a category or industry group helps you identify specific employers within that group. Write your objective with a narrow focus and demonstrate an interest in a specific setting without naming individual employers.

4. Functional Area; Functional area refers to the structure of an organization. Most organizations are divided into various departments, each responsible for the completion of specific tasks or functions. A large organization tends to be differentiated, meaning departments can have more specific functions. Smaller organizations may have the same department handling several functions. Identifying a functional area in a career objective specifies which part of the organization would be of interest to you without narrowing yourself to a specific industry group or organizational category.
