The 2016 Scholarship Essay Competition started in December, 2016.
Congratulations to Dini Hoffman of Brooklyn, NY, United States. Dini wins the $500 cash scholarship!
Hi! I'm Dini. I'm 20 years old and live in Brooklyn, N.Y. I'm currently pursuing a degree in Marketing and Management from Touro College, while working at Ajax Union Marketing, an incredible digital marketing agency located in Industry City (check us out!). Winning this prize has been an amazing honor! I was truly blown away by all the submissions and hope our stories can inspire others to define their career goals and chase their dreams. As for the $500 prize, no exciting plans here: straight into my savings account it goes! Thanks again to WCIRFM for this opportunity.
What Career is Right for Me presents a writing contest that offers a great cash prize. We know how important and difficult choosing a career can be. Our goal is to provide you with as much information as possible to point you in the right direction. You can help others by sharing your story with over 30,000 subscribers that have taken our career aptitude test.
