Example #2

Example #4
"I'm always interested in learning and expanding my knowledge base. At this point, I don't know that I'll seek an additional degree, but certainly always looking to learn from others, from conferences, classes, or seminars. I often seek out online tutorials and videos to help increase my skills in the graphic design arena, so I'm no stranger to continuing my education."
Example #5
"I am interested in continuing my education, formally or otherwise. Currently, I jump at any opportunity to attend seminars, conferences, or other continuing education courses offered to me. Also, I have often peeked at the local college's brochure to see if they offer any classes that would help further my career. For now, it seems the best way to continue my growth and education is through mentorships and seminars."
Example #6
