GAAPweb: Writing a personal statement on your Accountancy CV

GAAPweb

Recruiters tend to scan CVs quite quickly so you need to convince them within the first half page of your CV that you have the relevant skills and experience, otherwise they’re unlikely to read on and your CV could very well end up in the reject pile. One of the best ways to make that initial positive impact to get them hooked is to write a compelling personal statement/profile.  This is a short, sharp and succinct 3-5 sentence paragraph positioned just below your contact details on the first page of your CV which acts like a mini-advertisement  to grab their attention and highlight your relevant capabilities.
