Objective: To discuss your fit with the position and the company
Similar to Body Paragraph 2, highlight a transferable skill that makes you best suited for the role. Some examples of transferable skills are leadership, collaboration, project management and innovative thinking. You may have developed these skills from your project work, co-curricular activities, overseas exchange, and local/global internships.
Use this framework to craft your paragraph:
- State the competency that you want to highlight
I am comfortable taking up leadership roles…
- Explain the situation that demonstrates this skill
In university I have served as Chairman of the Annual Freshman Orientation Camp, Chairman of Temasek Hall students committee and Vice Captain for the NUS Floorball team.
- Provide specific achievements that show your proficiency (e.g. awards, academic excellence, recommendation)
This led to an achievement I take great pride in my nomination for a Student Life Award for Outstanding Contribution to Campus Culture. I believe that everyone can be a leader and shape the culture and community around them for the better.
