A personal statement is always helpful to have and update at intervals, this is most commonly referred to on an application form as ‘additional information’. It is your chance to really sell yourself and let an employer know why you are the best person for the job. A personal statement will need to be tailored for a specific job depending on the job specification.
A personal statement needs to be clearly communicated and concise, don’t just waffle! It should be written in continuous prose with short paragraphs. You can use sub-headings for each point on the job specification to help break it up into sections.
Make sure you have asked someone to proof read your personal statement!
