Do you need a resume objective statement on your resume?
A resume objective statement is used to let an employer know what specific job or internship you are interested in. The resume objective may appear on the top of your resume (see example below), or it may be incorporated into your cover letter. Bottom line, the objective statement needs to appear somewhere within the resume or cover letter as it shows the hiring manager the position you are interested in – when applying for a position, you should customize it so it relates the position for which you are applying. In the below example, the applicant is applying for a job in Business Management or Sales.
