An example of a weakness goal time management
An example of a weakness / goal - time management

  • I’m not very good at time management so I will start my assignmentsearlier’

  • Good start but now needs to have more depth and make connections


An example of a weakness giving depth and making connections

I’m not very good at time management and I yet know from my research on work placement, from talking to xyz and by looking at job descriptions on the Skillset website that it is a requirement of being an editor to be able to manage time effectively in order to successfully meet editorial deadlines and work effectively with others.( connection) Therefore I will help myself by using a wall planner/colour stickers/ask a friend to text me each week to keep me on target/talk to others about what they do/seek advice or support form my peers and tutors in order to develop a useful strategy (depth) ‘

‘Also I knowthat it is a requirement for successfully running a shooting schedule which is a requirement for next year’s programme when I will need to be handing in assignments, doing practical work and organising work experience/networking’ (connection)

An example of a weakness – giving depth and making connections


Example from roger
Example from Roger

  • I want to improve my time management and hand everything in on time. I am therefore aiming to finish projects ahead of time. This involves planning projects more carefully including how I will use my time and use to keep on track. I have realised that I often think I am doing well with a project until near the end, so I don’t think about time, so I get caught up in less important things. I will try to overcome this by having a more realistic plan and reviewing it every week. Also I will try to choose from my ideas more carefully.

  • ‘ I work well in teams’

  • Good start but now needs to have more depth and make connections

  • ‘I work well in teams - an example was being a member of a team of 5 for xyz assignment where the objective was to….. The outcome of this project was…(range). I understand from researching my long term career goal to be a camera operator through asking questions and observing on a recent placement, that team work is crucial.( connection) The roles I take in a team are sometimes to take the lead and other times to be the thoughtful and reflective one, asking useful questions. ( depth) An example of leading a team was …… (range) A challenge that I found working in a team included where 2 members were unwilling to attend meetings- What I suggested was……(depth)


Points for improving your submission

Add more examples (range) and give them more depth connections

Make connections between your skills/strengths, weaknesses to your career goals

Research career ideas

Plan clearer and more concrete steps within your short, mid and long term goals

Imagine you are using this as a basis for a CV / Interview preparation

Share with a mate!

Points for improving your submission


Improving your reflective commentary
Improving your Reflective Commentary connections

  • ‘I took the role of producer for this project and ran 3 productive meetings where roles were assigned and ideas discussed and agreed. In running meetings I ensured that everyone had the chance to put forward their ideas and each one was discussed. This wasn’t as easy as I expected and it helped me to see that listening sometimes takes more skill than talking but is a vital part of communication. One of the difficulties was that everyone had a very different views on what we should do and how we should do it. Although this was difficult to manage we were able to work successfully together. This experience helped me gain confidence in working with a range of people. My enthusiasm was important in motivating the rest of the group and I also kept going and worked even harder when things went wrong’


Interviews

Interviews connections

Applying this to interviews


Challenging interview questions

In small groups:

  • Make a note of any questions you think you may be asked in an interview that would be challenging for you.

  • Nominate someone to feed these back to the rest of the group when we get back together

    Work together for 10 minutes

    then we will come up with smart answers.
