Personal Statement My Intended Major Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



Given my experiences at Chinatown Teen Post and Blue Phone Wireless, I am very excited about my future prospects in management. Academic skills are valuable for learning business operations, but real-world experience adds missing ingredients needed to fully understand success such as knowing how valuable personal happiness, social responsibility and customer satisfaction really are.

My father was not able to find a job because he did not speak English and my mother has only been able to find work in low-paying, unskilled jobs. Even though she has had to work long hours to support my whole family, she never complains.
