Congratulations on reaching the end of Week 4 of Succeed in the workplace. This is a great achievement in itself. Hopefully, you also feel that you have made good progress in the career planning process. Over the last four weeks you have thought about yourself and started to explore opportunities. This week you have made a start on ‘deciding what to do’; as you’ve looked at possible work experience and volunteering that will help you achieve your aspirations.
In Week 5, you will turn your attention to making the most of the people around you and expanding your contacts – otherwise known, as your network. See you there.
You should now feel that you can:
- understand the benefits of both work experience and voluntary work
- explore work experience and voluntary work options to support your career development
- understand how to approach a work experience or voluntary work opportunity
- identify what you have discovered from the first half of the course.
You can now go to Week 5.
