Sociology personal statement example
A recent Sociology graduate from (what university, when and what grade did you end with) is looking forward to beginning a career using the skills and experience gained from learning about sociology.
I have always been keen to use my passion for sociology within the criminal justice system, helping through research and investigation to work out why people behave and react the way they do and what makes them from society to the crimes that they do and to find out what pressure is on people from society.
I find it very interested and am happy to research and learn to ensure that I know as much as I possibly can in my role. I am a good communicator, very organised and work in a very detailed and accurate manner. I work well under pressure and can work to tight deadlines as required. To be successful in my career I will always like to ensure I learn everything I possibly can.
