Your Personal Statement 

Kirstyn helped me to find my educational memories and work life memories to put in the personal statement. She really gave me the path. In the end, I got accepted to my program. I really recommend this service to students who need help to write their personal statement.

The Resume

Writing a resume or CV can be challenging! There are many details about your work experience to fit in a small amount of space. Your resume should be clear, concise and aesthetically pleasing!

 

On top of all that, when you are writing your resume in English, you have to be aware of format differences between your country and an English speaking country.

 

For example, did you know that you should never put your birthdate on your resume if you are applying for a position in the United States? It’s actually illegal for a future employer to know your date of birth before hiring you. 

 

Your resume is the first thing a future employer will see and it must make a good impression. Professionalism and precise writing is a must. In the resume/CV consultation, you will receive one-on-one feedback on how to create your best resume and gain valuable insight on what English-speaking employers are looking for. Your job experience and education is already outstanding and now it is time to make your resume stand out!

The Personal Statement 

(or Statement of Purpose)

The personal statement lets the university know about who you are beyond your TOEFL score. You are more than just your G.P.A. You are more than your GRE, SAT, or GMAT score. You are a unique individual with gifts and a vision. Your university wants to know this!

 

Your personal statement must be well-written and grammatically correct. This is the first time the university will see your writing and first impressions are important. Admission committees and advisors will look at the academic quality of your writing. They will also be looking for your goals and inner motivation. If your test scores are average, admissions committees will carefully consider your personal statement. Your personal statement can actually be the deciding factor!

Are you ready to commit to making your personal statement the best it can be? Are you ready to write a personal statement that truly shows your unique talents and skills that only you have?
