What Should I Include in My Personal Statement?

​Your personal statement is your opportunity to tell the employer exactly who you are and why you are so keen to apply for their role.

Your passion for the industry should shine through in this section of your CV and this is your chance to show what kind of employee you are.

You should summarise exactly how you will add value to the company if you were to be offered the position.

It is also recommended that you conclude your personal statement with your career objectives.

Having aspirations within your industry will impress an employer and show your commitment to succeeding within the role.

Generally, your personal statement doesn’t need to be any longer than 150 words. A few short sentences will suffice and you should keep it concise enough to fit in a single paragraph.


“I’m a skilled and highly experienced digital marketer with a degree in BA (Hons) Business & Marketing, and an extensive background working within the industry.

After graduating with a 2:1 degree, I have spent over a decade developing marketing strategies within e-commerce at a number of multinational brands.

As a young and ambitious creative, I am looking to expand my career within an up and coming brand and it is my goal to join, lead and grow your marketing team to rival the multinational brands which currently dominate the market.”
