A mission statement for an organization or company is a statement that states what your purpose is. It’s a roadmap to guide you in the right direction. It spells out what your goals are and the actions you need to take to achieve them.
So why can’t you, as a job seeker, have a mission statement too? Even though you have the information in your head, it always helps to write down on paper what needs to be done. It will help you see exactly what your strengths and weaknesses are and where you need to improve.
Writing a job search mission statement also helps you figure out what you want in a job. Instead of randomly sending out resumes to as many companies as you can, why not write down a mission statement to help you narrow your focus.
Once you figure out what your strengths are you can begin to target a job that will suit you that you will be happy at.
