Narrative essays tell a story. They can be complex, or simple. For example, you could write a narrative essay about your first job, how you found it, and how you lost it.
As in any story, you'll tell about events, using description (remember to use your senses), and stringing the events together.
Although you'll need to make a point and convey the insight the experiences have given you, you may not know what the point is until you've finished the essay. You may not even know when you've completed a couple of drafts.
Keep working with the material. The insight often comes to you in a flash.
