A Great Way To Write An Effective Statement

September 28th, 2009

When applying for a job vacancy, many application forms ask you to write a statement or detail your career objectives.Simply put, you may just feel that you want a good job with a good salary, and to work in a profession that interests you.Never the less conveying your job experience and professional expertise when you are limited to only a few sentences is no easy task.

Tesco Vacancies have a great range of jobs to suit all skills and needs.

Many people dismiss the value of stating their career objectives, presuming it is obvious that your objective is to get the job your are applying for.Employers all the same, are looking for an objective – they want to know what it is that you are looking for in order to determine whether or not you are a good match for their company.

Your objectives should be personal to you and specifically state any goals you have, try not to give vague information which does not clearly express your objectives.For example, ‘to work in a company where I can build on my skills and experience.If you think about this for a while, you’ll come to the realization that it doesn’t say much specifically about what you want to do in the future.Generalised statements such as this won’t help you stand out from the other candidates who may also have used similar statements.Specific career goals give an employer the impression that you have motivation to do the job.

The following tips will give you some help in writing your career objectives in a way that will get your CV or application noticed:

- Make it clear how committed and determined you are to reach your goals, this will show an employer how motivated you are to get and carry out the job.

- Stating your commitment is one thing, you also need to express how you are going to reach those goals and what career directions or actions are you willing to take to get there.

- Don’t be afraid to state what you want to get out of a job, such as the experience of working in a particular professional area.

- It is always worth bearing in mind that the words you use in your statement may come across differently to the person reading it. Implying that an potential employers place of work is a ‘challenging environment’ may come across as more offensive or may show that you have a lack of understanding about the position.
