For example i received student athlete of the year

This preview shows page 7 - 8 out of 8 pages.

For example: I received Student-Athlete of the Year when I graduated highschool. This is my proudest achievement. I joined my school’s cross country team my junior year of highschool. I didn’t look like the other runners, they didn’t even have a girl’s uniform in my size, but I ran the same race everyone else ran. Sometimes I was at the back--but never last. That experience taught me that I can do anything, and is motivation to me when I feel like giving up. What is you dream job? This question is similar to “Where do you see yourself in 10 years”, and you can prepare for it in much the same way. Your response to this question demonstrates your desire to think critically about the future. BONUS if you explain how admission to your dream school will help you achieve your dream job. Additionally, explain how you dream job will capitalize on your strengths. Your resume mentions…tell me more about that experience. This is a wonderful time to remind you to be completely honest on your resume. Never inflate hours or achievements. Take a look at your resume. If there are gaps causing you insecurity begin taking steps now to address them. For example, the summer before my senior year of high school I realized I hadn’t started an organization or club. I’d always wanted to start a mentorship program, and though I was entering my final year of high school, it wasn’t too late to start something new. During interviews I spoke candidly about the fact the club was new. Yes, I’d only mentor 3 or 4 girls, but that didn’t discount the work that went into building a curriculum, finding event space, paying for refreshments, and leading the mentorship sessions.

How would your friends describe you? This question in similar to “Tell me about yourself.”If you’re struggling with telling people about yourself, respond as if your friend is describing you. Your friends have lovely things to say about you so embrace it and share it with others. How do you deal with pressure or stress? Rigorous institutions come with occasional pressure and stress. Explaining your coping mechanisms (or being candid about the fact you’re still searching for coping mechanisms) demonstrates your self-awareness and maturity. [email protected]

    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.
