Guys,
I have just completed CFA- L3 and planning to shift into investment banking/ asset management, from a back office kind of role.
Would it be advisable to put my career objective in my resume-or will it hurt more than it benefits me- Kindly let me know your views.

I’ve been in the position to help hire people to our teams and all i have to say is that it had better be a super profound statement because 99.99999999% of the ones I’ve seen SUCK A$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!
if its something like “to secure a position in corporate finance and leverage my skills there blah blah blah” jsut leave it off the resume
every single applicant for this position wants to work in corp finance and leverage their skills…how does it differentiate you

Seriously… I believe adding additional relevant information to your skills section is far more beneficial than an objective statement.
Just my thoughts.

for investment banking….objective: To say goodbye to seeing daylight…oh hold that is no difference since you have been studying for CFA last few years… ;)
okay but jokes aside…I agree with BHahesy

how is investment banking harder?
IBanks walk you through a training course and show you exactly what they want done and how…its just a lot more hours but you’re getting PAID to be there!

Thanks guys for your inputs. I have removed the Career Objective and replaced with a summary section.

Curriculum Vitae Vs Resume

The main difference between a CV (Curriculum Vitae) and a resume is the purpose of the documents . The resume will be tailored to each position whereas the CV will stay put and any changes will be in the cover letter. In the United States a CV is used primarily when applying for international, academic , education, scientific or research positions or when applying for fellowships or grants. For most other jobs, a resume is the convention. In most other parts of the world, however, curriculum vitae are used more often than resumes. Because a resume and a curriculum vitae serve different purposes , job candidates should consider having drafts of both written and ready to use.

I strongly believe that adding more skills and portfolio work would be more beneficial rather than just sticking to career objective.
