A personal mission statement helps job-seekers identify their core values and beliefs. Here is one (free) example of a job-seeker's personal mission statement.
I am caring, compassionate, kind, and loyal.
I give to those in need, and never break my word.
I try to help others, and help others help themselves.
I believe in being successful, both emotional and financially. Not only for myself, but for the benefit of those around me.
I am open-minded and do not criticize what I do not understand.
I deal with problems as they arise, and do not avoid responsibility.
I believe that above all else, the ultimate goal is happiness, whatever its source, but not at the expense of others.
I always attempt to treat others as I would like to be treated myself.
