I’ve spent the past three summers working out of state as an administrative assistant for a major moving business. During the school year, I work 25-35 hours/week at Outback Steakhouse.
This summer (between junior and senior year), I chose three projects I was interested in pursuing:
1. Develop an app to increase productivity and efficiency of the moving business. Would make scheduling jobs, contacting customers, making invoices/receipts, etc easier and doable from a single phone application. Self-taught.
2. Create a non-profit music education organization. It would raise money for the to buy and repair instruments off of Craigslist to give to students in need. Would collect an repair donated instruments. It would also link high school musicians who want volunteer hours to young kids wanting music lessons.
3. Self-teach Spanish. I love language and have always wanted to be bilingual. It's very practical, especially because I work in the service industry and encounter many spanish-speaking coworkers and customers. Would demonstrate competency by taking the SAT II Spanish test.
Of the three projects, what do you think would enhance my application the most? How would you rank the three projects in order of difficulty? What are your general reflections? I appreciate all positive feedback. Thank you!
