Writing a personal statement for a job as a runner

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    I've got an opportunity to apply for a job as a runner in a well known movie studio. I've been asked to write a personal statement however I am unsure as to what I should write for it. I was thinking of just using the personal statement I made so that I could get into university, with obvious edits, however I just think it'd be too long.
    What is it that I can write? Just a general bullet point of perhaps what you'd think I should mention.

    Thank you

    Hey there,

    A personal statement can be anything from 5/6 lines on a CV to a full cover letter. They just want to know a bit more about the person they are hiring...
    Just let them know what you like, where you plan to progress your career, things like that.

    Personally I would thing that a UCAS Personal statement would be too much, but you should judge the situation yourself

    (Original post by iHateLaw)
    It's a standard cover letter. 3-4 sentences on why this sort of work, 3-4 sentences on why this employer/organisation, then 6-8 sentences highlighting the top 3 reasons you'd be good at the job
