Depends on the industry and the employer, but objective statements at times get overlooked as in the past they didn’t include any interesting or helpful information. Traditionally contained information about that the candidate wants as the employer really wants to be know what the candidate can do for the company. Perhaps, taking a modern approach to the traditional objective statement with a tag line or a list of one’s skills. A tag line would be your professional title or title you’re going after. Or listing out a skill set of your core talents that relate to your career goal. Overall, if you choose to do any of these recommend you keep it short, make sure you sell yourself, voice how you can contribute, and make sure it’s true!
