Last week we looked at our Career Advice Reports.

  • Did you send some messages?
  • Get any responses?
  • What did you do well?
  • What could you improve in your approach?
  • What can you do more of, or better?

How can we look for work experience, internships, work, volunteer opportunities?

  • Do you have the tools you need? (e.g. a CV)
  • Are there any online opportunities?
  • If not, how can you get yourself ready for work after your Diploma?

e.g.

  • How’s your WordPress site looking?
  • Can you build your portfolio? What would you like a potential employer to see?
  • How’s your bio sounding? Does it need updating?
  • Are you happy with your LinkedIn? Would you like a LinkedIn review?
  • What’s your CV looking like?
  • Have you Googled yourself? What impression are you giving people with your online presence?
TASK

List 3 things that you can do today to get yourself a bit closer to:

  • Finishing your assessments
  • Building your media skills
  • Getting a media job
  • Taking the next step in your career
