Sample Answer

Here is the sample for “Describe a Skill” topic

Digital technology has reshaped the world in more than one way during the last decade. As a result, a new way of living and working has also prevailed among people, especially Millennials. If you’ve heard about “digital nomad” – a work-from-anywhere kind of employee, you already know how a specific digital skill set can improve and simplify your life, which is why I take great interest in and set Photoshop – one of the most powerful graphic design tool to be my next challenge to conquer.

Being known as an incredible image editing program, Photoshop has earned its reputation for good reasons. Created and maintained by Adobe, Photoshop provides users with a complete and advanced toolset to maximize their creativity. It can do anything regarding online media, for example, creating 3D images, resizing, color correction, and even editing video. Fancy as it sounds, acquiring Photoshop skills would be a painstaking process. Due to complex features and even more complex applications, Photoshop is not for those without patience and constant practice. Furthermore, the program usually gets upgraded with more usages, therefore, you would have to keep learning to avoid being obsolete. Graphic design is a critical skill in this digital era that affords anyone flexibility as well as an attractive income.

Therefore, it would definitely be on top of my must-learn skill in the near future. Actually, I have already scheduled my timetable and squeeze in some hours for Photoshop 101 class next month and I hope it would go as well as it could be.
