Have you ever been through Paul Spencer on the National Postgraduate Committee discussion board www.npc.org.uk Nov 04 the process of applying for a job, looked at the person & job specification and then wondered how your skills and experiences match up?
If you have a structured way of: • recording your achievement and • various elements of 'training' that you have undertaken, it becomes a whole lot easier to create a comprehensive skills profile.
The overriding reason for undertaking PDP • is that employers look for people who have gone through the process of PDP • in other words the look for people who can evaluate their skills and react in an ever changing environment. • Adaptability is the key here.
It is also relevant in terms of project management of your studies • When you have a meeting with your supervisory team, you should discuss progress and where to go next • Advice- write it down!
