Examples of What to Say

GPAThe sky is the limit on what you can say about yourself on your clings but if you need inspiration, check out the list below for sample character traits and accomplishments and activities

For your goal, include a brief statement why you want a job, like “want to earn money to buy a car”.  This shows the hiring manager that you are motivated and will likely work harder.

Think about what your goal is and the types of places you want to apply and factor that into the things you include. For example, if you are applying for a summer job at a vet, say you love animals.

If you do volunteer work or support a cause, include that.  You never know when the hiring manager may support the same thing.  For example, if the manager is supporter of the Susan Komen Race for the Cure and sees that you support that organization, it might just move your application up to the top.


The great thing about Application Bling® is that it allows you to express things about yourself that a traditional job application doesn’t require but that a business may be looking for in job candidates.
