My name is Nirag Vashi and I am a student at Western Michigan University with a focus on science. My passion for helping others has been evident in my involvement in Kalamazoo Public Schools and as a camp counselor. I created life skills lessons for the campers that focused on communication, time management, and teamwork. I will be graduating from Western Michigan University with a bachelor’s degree in finance in August. I have worked on a wide variety of projects that have allowed me to use what I have learned in the classroom in a practical sense. I was in a new course last year where the students managed $500,000 for the Western Annual Fund and it was really exciting to see the portfolio grow.
How do you introduce yourself in a job application?
- Summarize your professional standing. The first sentence of your self-introduction should include your name and job title or experience.
- Elaborate on your experiences and achievements.
- Conclude with a lead-in to the next part of the conversation.
Preparing and practicing a verbal introduction will help you remember important details. When you need to send an email regarding a job posting or sales opportunity that you have found, you can use a template from a written self-introduction. I am seeking an entry-level warehousing job that will use my organization, attention to detail and time management skills. I am excited to find my first teaching position after working at a camp for elementary children this summer. I would love to talk to you about your needs in this area and find out if you are interested in participating in the testing of a new sales app.
