Replace the following text/image with your own:
All examples of work should have visual elements, such as diagrams or images. These elements can be abstract or concrete, personally created or taken from the public domain. Effective visual elements usually capture some kind of theme, context, or objective of the work reflected in the overall summary.
TIP: You can search online at .gov and other sites for non-copyrighted or royalty-free images.
Describe the larger issues and context that frame the work (e.g., the need to provide affordable health care to all people). Try to demonstrate to the reader why the work is important on at least one of several levels. Examples of these levels include:
Describe the goals of the overall project, place, program, etc., where your work takes place - the emphasis here is not on your individual work per se, but the work of the larger organization, effort, or program as a whole. If no such context exists, then you can refer to specific professional or personal goals the example of work is fulfilling.
Describe your role specifically: what you did, who you worked with, and (if applicable) how you assessed your work. BE BEHAVIORALLY SPECIFIC.
Describe the overall impact your efforts had on others (e.g., groups, communities, the evolution of a project or program, research efforts, etc.,) or your own learning.
This section is intended to convey to the reader what you learned overall and how the learning has carried forward to other areas of your life/work. For instance, if the current summary provides a snapshot of your work in a leadership role (and you learned to effectively plan, delegate, organize a group of people), then in this section you can describe how this experience gave you the foundation or confidence to take on additional leadership-related roles and responsibilities in other contexts.
Use a variety of specific action verbs and behaviors to describe what you learned both personally and professionally. Search on the web for specific skill language that is relevant to your interests, field, or area of work and then integrate that language into this section wherever possible; when you find additional skill language, make sure to share it with your peers.
