What is a Career Objective?

Introduction

A job campaign consists of many tasks: writing a resume, finding potential employers, reviewing job openings, creating application letters, networking, interviewing, receiving rejections, negotiating job offers, and making many decisions. The best place to start is with a goal or an objective. It may be helpful to ask ”What do I want to do?” and “Where do I want to be?”

What is a Career Objective?

Your career objective is a personal statement defining the specifics you wish to attain via professional work.

  1. It’s personal: Others may share similar goals, but your objective should state your goals in terms that are comfortable to you.
  2. It’s a commitment: State a goal that identifies who you are and what you want to achieve.
  3. It’s action-oriented: Take control of your life by proactively communicating your skills and accomplishments to an employer.
  4. It’s directional: Focus on your future and identify steps to take and information to seek. Your focus can be short or long term. You will be better equipped to evaluate potential work situations by examining your future goals.
  5. It’s specific: Clearly identify facts about a work situation. Broad terms like “successful” or “challenging” may mean something to you, but convey no facts to an employer.
