Crafting Your Personal Statement for College and Career Success
Wed, March 29, 2017, 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM EDT
Join Graduate! Philadelphia for a special College Writing Workshop at the Northeast Regional Library.
Show your prospective college or employer how your past and present prepares you to be in their future. This workshop will show you how to write a personal statement -- a critical reflection on the personal and professional self.
A personal statement is used to communicate what you want to be and do—what qualities you want to develop, what you want to accomplish, and what contributions you want to make. Having a great Personal Statement helps when writing applications for scholarships, job application letters and college admissions essays. It is also an essential tool for career planning, as clarity on these issues affects the goals you set, the decisions you make, and how you budget your time.
