Are these good or bad objectives??
-To obtain a position that will enable me to use my strong organizational skills, educational background, and ability to work well with people.
-“Seeking a project management position with leadership responsibilities including problem solving, planning, organizing and managing budgets.”

-Obtain a position at XYZ Company where I can maximize my management skills, quality assurance, program development, and training experience.

-To secure a position with a well established organization with a stable environment that will lead to a lasting relationship in the field of finance.

-To secure a management position where I can effectively utilize my expertise in human relations, project management, and staff recruitment and retention.

-While I am open to any uses of my educational achievements, I am decidedly disposed that the task of the new career-related responsibility be so oriented as to at least partially address or configure and to ultimately lead to the application of more rarefied and challenging facets of financial management as the major sphere of the responsibility of the stated position.
-To continue my career with an organization that will utilize my MANAGEMENT, SUPERVISION & ADMINISTRATIVE skills to benefit mutual growth and success.
