Dustin Johnston Personal Statement A variety of reasons – both personal and professional—have led me to the McCombs School of Business. My choice has been influenced by my work experience, my education and my future aspirations. Work Experience After Graduating from high school I obtained a retail job as a sales associate in Austin, Texas less than ten miles from the UT campus. While in this position I noticed numerous inefficiencies running ramped in my store. Once I voiced these observations to my store manager I was given the job of alleviating these problems and the position and authority to do so. After being in my new departmental manager position for three months I was approached by my store manager and asked if I would be willing to take on a higher management position because I had saved the store more than $20,000 for two consecutive months. In my new position I supervised an additional twelve employees and continued to point out any inconsistencies I noticed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
