When you earn the Financial Literacy badge called Financing My Future, you learn to invest in yourself, whether that means going to a trade school, community college, or university. No matter what path you choose after high school — continuing your education or getting a job — you’ll find that your cookie sales experience will put you a step ahead.
1. Create a cookie resume
2. Put together a cookie portfolio
3. Get feedback about how to market yourself for a job or college interview
4. Write an essay about what you learned from the cookie sale
5. Learn how to ace an interview
When I’ve earned this badge, I’ll be able to show college admissions officers and employers what I’ve learned from cookie sales experience.
