What Is a Professional Mission Statement?

When you’re job searching, you’ll often be asked for a professional mission statement.

A professional mission statement is a brief, clear statement of your career goals and the values that guide you in achieving those goals. It should articulate what you hope to achieve professionally, and how you hope to contribute to your industry or field. Your professional mission statement can help you make decisions about your career path, and it can also be a useful tool for communicating your goals to others.

In other words, a personal mission statement is a brief, powerful statement that articulates your core values and beliefs. It is a declaration of who you are and who you want to be.

Your professional mission statement should be:

  • Concise, clear, and easy to remember. It should be something that you can recite without hesitation or pause.
  • Inspiring and motivating. It should articulate your highest aspirations and provide direction for your life.

Some examples of personal mission statements are:

  • “To inspire positive change through coaching and education.”
  • “To positively influence the lives of all those I meet.”
