I have been having a difficult time adding something for the additional information so I decieded to talk about my part time job. Would that answer be okay or should I talk about something like robotics club as I am applying to computer engineering.

I've been employed at Canada Cartage as an office clerk ever since 2017. As an office clerk, I am often expected to perform a variety of tasks, this includes answering phone calls, typing documents, running errands and filing various records. Primarily, as an office clerk, I am expected to essentially do a bit of everything. I believe working in this position has helped me develop many skills such as communication skills, computer skills, customer service skills, and increase my attention to detail. Moreover, working at Canada Cartage has helped me develop various qualities such as being responsible, having effective time management, professionalism, work ethic and most importantly learning to succeed in stressful situations. Continuing, I am usually expected to work every week and I work about 10 hours a week. (822)

Talking about your part time job is the perfect way to respond to the instruction. There are no hard and fast rules regarding how to respond to this prompt. All that is required from you as an applicant is for you to tell the reviewer something about yourself that you were not able to talk about in the previous essays or statements. It doesn't have to be academic in nature, nor related to your course major. By telling the reviewer about your part time job, you are telling him about an important side of your character that can help provide the reviewer with a sense of how responsible you are, how other people view you, and how you are capable of multi-tasking two unrelated tasks successfully. You have perfectly shown the reviewer that you are definitely ready to attend college and that you have the ability to handle stressful situations in an adult manner. Good job.
