Choose a strength that’s required for your target position.
Being organized, both mentally and physically, was and is one of my biggest strengths. Since I’m pursuing a career as an auditor, it’s important to be able to juggle tasks and keep things in order. In school, I balanced homework, deadlines, finance club meetings, and a part-time job. I still use filing systems, to-do lists, and email reminders to stay on track.
Describe a strength that sets you apart from other students.
My ability to prepare for important deadlines was my most distinguishing skill as a student. For example, I used to create detailed study plans to help me memorize important information. I use that same method to remember information about people I meet, including their names or job titles. I think this skill will help me when I meet and build relationships with customers, and when I’m networking with other professionals.
