The internet is flooded with video’s and ‘how to’ guides on writing your personal statement for a University application. These statements are very detailed and take a lot of time and preparation to achieve the ‘winning’ material. You may get to this stage further on in your education / employment career, but for now, you only need to prepare a small paragraph about yourself.
By writing a ‘mini’ personal statement, you will get used to the strange process of promoting yourself and show employers that you have focus and a personality!!
Adding a personal statement at the top of your CV can make all the difference in encouraging the employer to read your CV in full.
