Out of all the resume examples for Project Management on this site, why do so few have job objective statements? Many of them have a professional title (such as "Project Manager") at the top in place of the objective statement. Or they use one of the other alternatives to the objective statement.
One way or another, your resume should make your career goal clear to your reader. Here are times when writing a job objective statement might be the best way to do that:
- You're making a career change. (For example, you want to move from being an Administrative Assistant to a Project Manager.)
- You're new to project management work and have very little or no experience in the field. (Maybe you're fresh out of college with only a few part-time jobs waiting tables to put on your resume.)
