Week 8: Next steps
Welcome to the final week of this course! You should, by now, have a good idea of what an internship is, how to apply for one and how to make the most of that or any other work experience you obtain.
This week, you’ll bring all of your learning together and start to plan your next steps. You’ll reflect on your aims from Weeks 1 and 2 and create an action plan. In a potentially competitive environment, you’ll reflect on the importance of resilience in the face of application rejection. You’ll also consider how to maximise your work experience after it has finished.
Watch this video that introduces the week:
By the end of the week you will be able to:
- develop an action plan for your next steps
- use your work experience to your advantage in the future
- reflect on your personal resilience and how to deal with rejection.
You’ll start by acknowledging where you are now and considering your next steps.
