Cover letter + CV + interview should be it (it's also entirely likely that I've indeed written PS for jobs and forgot. My last job offer from an international school in SG required me to write an essay related to my experiences in Education, I only wrote it because they requested I write it after
the interview.) I'm a good writer but the whole idea of a "personal statement" just makes me wince with all of the same garbage financial-job responses people write about being "adaptable" and talking about their first made-up business success... kill me now. Trite, trite, trite.
