You have come a long way since the beginning of the course. Remember the career planning model reproduced here? Well, you are on the brink now of moving into the action phase – you should pat yourself on the back for reaching this stage.
This week you have started to bring together ideas about your working life that you can use in a practical way.
Some of you will want to do this almost immediately. Others may still be planning when and how to use the knowledge and skills you have developed in creating applications and CVs. Just remember to be ready for those opportunities which are unexpected, that come at a time which never feels quite right, but might be just the right next step for you.
Next week you will move onto the next stage in the process – the interview. See you there.
You should now feel that you can:
- review a job advert
- consider what makes a good job application
- explore why it is important to have a current curriculum vitae
- create or update your curriculum vitae (CV).
You can now go to Week 7.
