While looking through my resume and stuff, I found the essay I wrote while I was applying for the position at MOE (which I left after 6 mths there).
It’s actually pretty refreshing to read what I’ve written. They are values that I still hold dear to me, but that I might have forgotten along the way.
The topic was “Key achievements/activities/interests and how they reflect my values and beliefs”. (So typically government no?)
Not going to share everything but here are some excerpts.
About being helpful..a value that I hold very strongly if it is within my ability to help, I should and will try my best to help.
About perseverance…that no matter how tough a situation anyone is in, a little bit of perseverance and optimism will get them through it. No one should ever give up without trying their hardest.
About hardworkI also believe that being hardworking pays….as long as I have tried my best and gave my all, the end result doesn’t matter. Because even if I fail, I know that I’ve done everything I could and from my failure I will most definitely learn something.
