This is quite possibly the most important part of your CV, just like the title and description of a news article, advertisement or book an employer will make a judged snapshot decision within milliseconds if they are interested and will read on, so what you write here might be the difference of make or break.
So what should you include? As mentioned earlier, this is your opportunity to tailor your CV to the role you are applying for, highlighting and matching your skills, qualities and experiences to the specific role. It should paint a picture of who you are, what you can offer not just your skills but experiences too, your career achievements and career goals. Now this isn’t an essay so try to keep your personal statement concise, enlightening and to the point, this will help to grab your reader’s attention and generally makes a more memorable and lasting impact. Don’t forget employers will likely have many CVs to go through, so less is more, more or less.
