Sample Answer of Describe a Time when You Gave Advice to Someone
I am quite a helpful nature as it is part of humanity, whether it can be peers or it can be parents. In one of the incidents, I remember I helped one of my cousins as he was confused as to which college and branch he wanted to take.
As I took 1 year before him, I was fully experienced, and I had full knowledge about the procedures. So, I explain all the fields and what he wants to take after 12th science. As he was interested in engineering and his family business was from a civil engineering background, he decided to follow in his family footsteps.
After getting admission, he was happy as all the subjects were a matter of his interest. I was happy as he took the advice from me. Because I remembered my time when I was in 12th, there was no one helped so at that moment I decided to help whomever what they what. At now, when he comes to my house, he feels thankful for the advice I gave.
