Our application tips series keeps rolling along! In today’s post, Dawna Clarke offers her top tips for writing great essays.

As Dawna notes, the essay section of our application is an opportunity for us to get to know you better: “If you’ve reviewed [our essays], you likely noticed we have a number of short answer questions, rather than one long essay. We feel this approach gives us a broader perspective on just who you are as a person, and we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to share your story.” Check out the video below for additional essay-related insights.

Want even more application advice? Be sure to check out Dawna’s other videos on resumes (leadership/impact and global experience) and interviews! And stay tuned for the next (and final – at least for 2018!) installment in this series all about leveraging your resume to highlight your hobbies and interests.
