Essay for Working Holiday

April 5, 2006

지원 동기서는 Working Holiday 접수시에 작성하는 것입니다. 그리고 지원동기는 Visa를 받느냐 못 받느냐를 결정짓는 가장 중요한 요인입니다. 최대한 신경써서 신중하게 작성해야 합니다. 대행업체에 맞기기 보다는 직접 쓰는 것이 더 낫다고 생각합니다. 대행업체는 아무래도 지원자의 생각을 그대로 담아낼 수 없거든요. 물론 한글로 자기가 써서 그것을 번역해주기도 하는데요. 그래도 자신이 직접 쓰는 정성정도는 들여야 합니다. 그 정도의 의지가 없으면 캐나다 워킹홀리데이 비자를 신청할 필요조차 없습니다.

대부분의 사람들이 꼽는 에세이에 들어갈 필수 조건은 아래와 같습니다.

위의내용은 필수적으로 들어가야 합니다. 위 사항에 덧붙여서 지금까지 워킹홀리데이 비자를 위해 준비해온 노력들을 첨부하시면 더욱 좋습니다.

아래 제 미천한 english + 주변 사람들의 훌륭한 교정 이 들어간 지원 동기서 입니다. 제 스스로 만족하는 지원동기서입니다.

Essay

I like to take pictures. The world that I see through a viewfinder is wonderful. Robert Capa, the photographer who I have respect for, said “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough,” This means, if you want to understand something, you have to become familiar with it and make an effort to understand it.

The reason for application is like what Capa said. If I understand Canadian culture, I do gain my lively experience at first hand in Canada. The lively experience is to work and make a living in Canada. I’m too young to go sightseeing comfortably. I want to jump into Canadian life. I hope to work and breath together in Canada. In a holiday, properly rewarded for my effort, I want to take pictures, which are the marvelous Canadian sceneries such as the Rockies, Great Vancouver area, and eastern Canada.

I heard much of Canada from my friend who traveled Canada. He said, “You’d better travel Canada the last time, because if you travel Canada at the beginning, it will be a tedious journey to travel other country.” From that time, I have wanted to travel Canada best of all. I have dreamed Canadian culture and the Rockies’ wonderful nature. In Holiday, I want to experience Canadian life that is to enjoy a holiday at the villa near a forest.

I have been studying English to go to Canada. I have studied Conversation in priority. If I am poor at English, I have a hard time in Canada. Studying English is difficult but I have studied hard in order to achieve what I want. Since I finished military service, I have done a lot of part-time jobs such as labor and waiter. I think these jobs will be useful for my Canadian life.

Working Holiday VISA will be a great turning point in my life. I have prepared Working Holiday for a long time. And I have confidence that I can do it. I’m dreaming of my life in Canada.
