We know that putting yourself out there in front of colleges and employers can be awkward, confusing, or scary. Maybe you don’t know what to say or how to say it. Well, we hope Tallo’s making the whole process a little better.

We know there’s more to your story (and your Tallo profile) than just your GPA and standardized test scores. Just about anything that you do outside of the classroom can have a place in your profile. If you’re having a hard time figuring out what to write, we went ahead and made a little list for you.  

Any of them sound like you? Go ahead and paste them right into your profile. It’s cool with us. All you have to do is fill in the blanks and switch up the descriptions to match your unique experiences. Easy-peasy!

1. Trusted babysitter with (insert number) years of childcare experience

As a dependable and dedicated babysitter, I ensure that the young children in my care are kept safe and engaged. I am consistently recommended by my clients to other parents due to my trustworthiness and experience.

2. Volunteer with (insert local community or faith organization)

As a member of my organization’s marketing committee, I helped generate interest for our largest fundraising event of the year. By promoting the event with flyers, emails, and telephone calls, we set a new attendance record.

3. Member of (insert sports team)

As a three-year member of my school’s varsity basketball team, I have learned important skills such as teamwork, cooperation, and commitment. Over three years, I was never late to a single practice or game, and I was voted co-captain during my senior season.

4. Freelance lawn maintenance professional

I have spent the past two summers managing my own lawn care business by proactively advertising my services to members of the community. I worked hard to ensure that each customer was satisfied with the level of care I provided for their lawn, and have grown my client list extensively.  

5. Experienced (insert subject) tutor

As a tutor, I know that it takes compassion and patience to help others learn. I help students complete their homework and special assignment, and prepare for tests. My favorite part is when a student shows me that their grade has improved!
