The next writers do a good job of connecting their extracurricular activities to specific skills that can apply to the jobs they seek:
- My current success as vice president of public relations for Student Ambassadors demonstrates my leadership ability and communication skills. I plan and organize Open Houses for prospective students and their parents, as well as create and publish an information sheet about the organization and its members. Holding the position of vice president of membership for the student chapter of the American Marketing Association further emphasizes my effectiveness in marketing and public relations.
As the coordinator of a tutoring program for disadvantaged youth, I have developed my organizational and communication skills, as well as my determination and solid work ethic. The same skills that aided me in recruiting 115 new volunteers for service projects this year make me a valuable asset for your organization.
The combination of classroom experience in accounting and my upbeat attitude can only benefit your company.
My experience demonstrates my motivation, leadership ability, communication skills, and ability to work well with people. I planned and organized a fundraising project that raised $10,000 for Sussex County local charities. I also coordinated service projects for all members in my organization.
This writer combines academic experience with extracurriculars and nicely outlines applicable accomplishments in both areas:
- I have spent the last four years studying business at Babson College, where I have maintained a 3.2 GPA. These years have provided me with a good business background and have sparked my interest in the underwriting and claims aspects of insurance.
Although a college student, I am not a typical undergraduate. I am a highly motivated self-starter. I established a house-painting business to help pay part of the cost of college. This experience taught me to work as hard as I can to achieve my goals. As rush chairman of my fraternity, I was motivated to make my organization the best. While only eight new members were initiated the year before I took office, 22 new members pledged when I held the position. Nationals recognized this accomplishment when we received a special award for recruitment. I have the maturity and the drive to similarly benefit your organization.
