It was while editing and reviewing a UCAS personal statement for a friend (a much younger friend, alas) that I thought about writing some helpful blog posts about crafting said statements.
And so, it is on this basis that I have decided to write a brief series of posts about the dreaded personal statement. They come in several guises and I will endeavour to drum up some helpful hints and tips for each form in the following posts:
- Personal statements for UCAS applications
- Personal statements for CVs
- Personal statements for other job application forms
This series will be unveiled right here over the next few days.
In the meantime, do you have any experiences (good or bad) of the infamous personal statement? Go on, don’t be shy. Leave me a comment with your thoughts.
