There are schools that require an applicant to submit a Statement of Purpose instead of a PS, the thrust of which is to present an applicant's goals in terms of what major to pursue, what research direction to take, and other specific study and career plans, if any. Therefore, in this case, you are required to submit a similar essay but with greater emphasis on your specific study and career plans. Most applicants are confused with the difference between a PS and a Statement of Purpose. This is not to say, however, that a PS cannot be a Statement of Purpose and vice versa, because as you will discover in the next section, these two can actually overlap depending on the outline you have created.
Telling Them You Want the Job _ The hiring manager already knows that you want the job, otherwise you wouldn't have applied yet applicants insist on telling the prospective employer how much they enjoy their line of work and their desire to work for the company. Your personal statement should focus on the reasons WHY you should be hired, NOT why you want the job.
