If you’re a student who is facing the college admissions process, you know that it can be an anxious time. Not only do you need to be a good student and have decent grades, but many colleges want to see that you’re a well-rounded student as well. By having a job in an area that you like or are passionate about, you can demonstrate that quality.
For students who work for Chick-fil-A there are a lot of beneficial skills you learn that college admissions committees are looking for. Among the most important are these three skills:
- Perseverance and goal setting. For many Chick-fil-A employees heading to college, showing how your job is helping you achieve personal, monetary, or even future career-related goals will set you apart from many other applicants. Why wouldn’t a college admissions counselor want a hard-working, goal-oriented student at their school? The fact is, they do. Demonstrating a successful background at Chick-fil-A will show colleges that you are an applicant who has a high chance of succeeding.
- Discipline. Having a Chick-fil-A job as a student also shows that you are preparing for the real world, which is attractive to college admission teams. Having a high school job demonstrates that you understand the importance of meeting obligations, getting to work on time, being consistent, and being independent of your parents. These are issues that many students struggle with during their transition into college. In college, discipline is a necessity. It’s what guides your decision making and keeps you on course.
- Multi-tasking. A job at Chick-fil-A teaches you how to multi-task. This is a valuable skill to have in college. Demonstrating how you have learned this skill and how it will apply to your college experience and what you will accomplish as a result of this skill will play well in your application letter.
Having a head start on learning these skills will put you ahead of the pack.
