Career action plan and self-reflection paper

Following on from the research that you undertook in CW1(see appendix 1) you need to:
• Complete a personal analysis of what you have to offer this employer at the moment. This should include your current skills, knowledge, and experiences, both academic and from other areas of your life. However, it needs also to identify if there are any areas for development. For example: Where could you do with adding more evidence? What additional skills & experiences do you need to add?
• Once you have answered the above, you are in a position to develop your Career Action Plan. This should show both the short-term and longer-term actions required to prepare you for an opportunity in the area you have researched. Your actions must be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-bound)The report – Career Action plan and self-reflection

1. Executive summary
2. INTRODUCTION – Provide a paragraph outlining what your assignment will cover. From CW1 (see appendix 1), you will need to include a brief summary of the job opportunity that you identified and also the full list of the key skills and knowledge/expertise that you identified as being required. These will form the basis for your self-evaluation.
3. PERSONAL ANALYSIS – a general review of your current skills, knowledge and experience related to those identified in CW1 (see appendix 1). You need to provide evidence for this analysis, so you can include the feedback and information reviewed within the seminars as well as work experience, and volunteering. The aim is to highlight current strengths, and also areas to focus your personal development around. Mention that my CV and LinkedIn profile evidence will be attached in the appendices. Reflect on the following areas: What areas do you lack evidence in? Where do you need further examples/evidence in your applications? Where do you feel weak in your overall application?
4. CAREER ACTION PLAN (SMART)– Once you have identified the areas you need to focus on, you need to prepare a Career Action Plan which addresses both the personal development and specific career-related activities you will undertake to take you forward. This plan should include the knowledge, skills, and experiences you need to further develop. You should come up with clear actions to get you to where you want to be. You should show the resources you will use to move the area of development forward and the timescales you will complete these in. This should cover as a minimum the time remaining to your graduation. This plan can be presented in the form of a table.

5. CONCLUSION – A brief reflection on how you feel having completed the overall assignment, and how you intend to use the Career Action Plan.
