Wendel Clark reports:
"A competency statement is a way to highlight skills that you have acquired from different jobs and from nonwork experiences. When writing a competency statement, you should make sure to format it correctly by following a simple writing procedure. Review the job description for the position to which you are applying. The job description should highlight the competencies that the employer is looking for in a potential employee. Use these as a starting point to think of how they relate to your own competencies. Write down each of your competencies as a heading...Elaborate on each competency below the heading...by providing examples of your competency from your previous experiences...Complete each competency by explaining the outcome of your experiences...Provide details about specific accomplishments wherever possible...Remember to write your competency statement in the first person and to use action verbs."
