competence question : From theory to practice


Can anyone share your thoughts of how to answer this :

'Describe how you have applied something that you have learnt to make a practical difference. ’

I am very stuck by this since my previous internships were not relevant to my studies ;S

Any thoughts will be welcome, thanks a lot!


it might not have to do with your degree. one fairly basic example would be that you read an article on the importance of customer retention and repeat business, so when you worked, you aimed to make the client happy, for the above reason by doing x y and z.


Your words help me think out of the box!!
Thanks a lot!
