THE AWFUL TRUTH is, the company doesn’t really care what you want, it is about what you can do for the company.  Your objective statement should be a concise summary of what you bring to the table.  Objective statements that ramble on about all the different things you want to do or worse what you want out of a company (like good benefits) are pretty much worthless.  When writing your objective statement think in terms of marketing yourself and talk about the skills and abilities you know a company would be excited to see in a candidate for that position.
