Describe a time when you gave advice to someone

Sample 1

Most of us would either give advice or receive advice from different people who surround us. I would like to speak about a good tip which I gave to one of my friends recently. His name is Swaroop who was my ex-colleague in Cognizant. Though he was very talented, he was not recognized by our team leads and managers. So, he got upset and got low ratings every year. As a result, his yearly hike in salary is not up to the mark, I would say. So, one day when we went to break in the office, I suggested he try different companies. Besides, I had given some contacts to him for referrals. Through which he cleared an interview recently in TCS and joined. He feels that it was a piece of very helpful advice which I had given to him. Besides, it improves his financial status and career growth as well. So I feel that I had helped him with a small piece of advice.

Sample 2

I think giving a piece of advice depends upon a person because to take that advice is up to them. So I gave a piece of advice to my friend about how she should change her thinking after getting a fail in one test. She was devasted and had negative thoughts. Also, she was not able to focus or think about anything else. So I said that you should try to forget it and think about giving it another try and keep staying positive because many people are not successful, but they get success when they try. I feel that because of that booster talk, she tried to keep being positive and enrolled in a yoga class, and today she is where she wanted to be.
