Career Aspirations: Self-Assessment and critical reflection (25%)
Aligned unit learning outcomes: 1, 2
Length: 600-700 words total (80-100 words STAR method, 500-600 words reflection)
Due date: Monday 24 May
Location: PebblePad, Mini Module 2
In considering your career aspirations throughout mini modules 1 and 2, you have been thinking about your own wellbeing; the personal and professional benefits of building resilience; and considering the kinds of skills employers want, with the underlying idea of exploring how you might actively begin to position yourself for your future career. For this assessment you are going to appraise your current skills, critically reflect on your career aspirations, and form a statement of this as a base line against which you can gauge your development over time.
To complete this assessment:
1. Evidence capability for your best/strongest skill using the STAR method
2. Compose a coherent written critical reflection in which you consider your career aspirations, current skills, and how your chosen course of study at Murdoch is part of your personal, professional and career development.
Things that must inform and shape your discussion include:
Important: You should write this as a coherent piece of text with properly constructed sentences and paragraphing; and it should have a logical flow through the different points of discussion
Remember, this is an academic piece of writing, so your work requires the proper use of grammar, spelling and a logical flow of ideas.
You may find it easier to compose and edit your reflection using a word processor such as MSWord; this will allow you to readily move information around and edit it as you go. You can then ‘copy and paste’ it back into the PebblePad workbook when it is completed.
