Personal resume statements are the declarations presented by the applicants explaining the purpose of their job application to their recruiters. It is basically a short essay attached along with one’s resume describing his career interests, reason for application and expectations and aspirations from the job sought.
The main objective of the statement is to highlight the important points of one’s resume and guide the authorities in reading those points. Since the personal resume statement is supposed to guide the recruiter’s response towards the applicant and provide them with enough reasons to hire the person in question, they must be constructed with absolute care and precision.
