Surveying Personal Statement
I believe that quantity surveying is a vocation and not just a job. My interests in this area have established within in the last year. Some of my ancestors are quantity surveyors and I have seen how demanding the profession can be
Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to shadow a Quantity Surveyor outside my family however I would like to gain experience in the one year work placement that is offered through this course
I am able to communicate and participate well in a team, as well as being able to achieve goals and objectives independently through hard work and dedication
I have attended school for fourteen years and within in this time I have gained a lot of experiences and many rewards. I have obtained many certificates and recognition for school choir of the year, camogie championships, netball tournaments, ladies Gaelic football and swimming. Academic awards include recognition for French speaking, level 7 in information Systems skills, First aid courses completed with St. John's ambulance service finally I received a plaque for gaining 8 G.C.S.Es grade C and above
I am currently playing for the Desertmartin Ladies Gaelic football team. This has taught me how to work together as a team, consider others yet having self motivation as included in a team sport; this has given me experience in how to work with others especially under pressure
A quantity Surveyor is a high pressured job and I feel I have the motivation and skills to deal with this pressure and work to the best of my ability and I am sure this is the career for me.
