The short answer - yes. You want to cater your resume as much as possible to the role that you are applying to.
But, with that said, I wouldn't necessarily advise that you always have to have an objective statement. If you are finding it tough to fit other relevant material on your resume, and it came down to your objective or listing a few computer applications that you have experience with, I'd definitely do away with the objective statement. To be entirely honest, I only give the objective statement a quick glace to make sure they weren't referencing applying to a different role or other company (happens more often than you would think).
If you do want to keep an objective statement, keep it short and catered to the role. But, if you find that your objective statement really doesn't match your true interests, skip applying to the role altogether. It's probably not the right fit for you or the company.
Good luck in your search!
