How to write effectively so application committees read every single word.

Do you want to grab the application committee’s attention? So they read every. single. word?

That’s my goal for today – to teach you to write about your volunteer and leadership experience in an eye-catching way.

Here’s how – to fully highlight your involvement, use the STAR structure!

STAR is a 4-part acronym that will help you craft a strong paragraph describing a specific volunteer or extracurricular experience.

  • S — Situation (who, what, when, where)
  • T — Task (your objective)
  • A — Actions (what you did, how you did it, skills you used)
  • R — Result (qualitative or quantitative proof of your success)

Repeat this structure for every activity.

Using this will make your writing powerful and easy to follow. And if you want to see an example of how this should be written, just check out how I wrote this email.

Hope this last page was a fun read and you enjoyed this 4-part series!
