Personal goal statements should include career goals, transferable skills and outside interests. Career goal statements should mention a specific path and elaborate on individual objectives. Use imaginative language to stand out. Emphasize why you are well-suited to the field and what originally attracted you to that particular career path.
Personal skills that can be transferred to the intended career should be addressed. Time management skills, leadership and independent thinking are some examples. Reference specific incidences where these skills have proved relevant, and relate them to the intended career path. Highlight and outline outside interests and activities. They should be distinctive and focus on accomplishments and accolades received.
