Every potential employer wants to know how you can be a great asset to their company.
How can you convince your prospective employer that you are the best person for the job even before you meet them with your CV?
I understand that creating a good CV requires hard work and great attention to detail. You have the experience, skills and educational qualifications, but you want the recruiter to know the value that you can add to the company, but how?
This is where you will need a personal statement to come through for you on your CV. I know you may be like;
“Do I need a personal statement on my CV when my experiences and skills are boldly written on my CV?”
Yes! You need a personal statement to quickly tell your prospective employer about your special talents, skills, and experience that you are bringing into the job.
According to statistics, employers spend only reading a CV. This means that you have just 6 seconds to prove to the employer that you are the best fit for the job, and this is what a personal statement does for you.
