You may have a strong CV, however, many employers will require you to complete a job application as well. This may be your first chance to make an impression on a potential employer. Your job applications can be the difference between being rejected outright or invited for interview, therefore it’s crucial to get them right.
In a crowded career market, you need to stand out from other candidates, so it’s very important that your job applications clearly set out to recruiters why you’re the best fit for them. A high-quality application demonstrates you’ve thought about the role and can meet the requirements, and as a result, should get the attention of the recruiter.
The Personal Statement is a key aspect of the application and, as a result, is the main way to set yourself apart from the crowd. Above all, it gives you the means to tell the employer your reasons for applying for the role and, prove to them why you’re suitable. It’s your opportunity to bring the dry factual sections of your application to life by elaborating on key relevant points.
If you have a specific job that you want to apply for, we’ll help you to write a Personal Statement for that role. Or, we can provide details of a job advertisement in your field that we’ll use to show you how to complete a Personal Statement.
