Internships and other work experiences

6 Summary of Week 8

This week, you’ve reflected on and consolidated your learning from the whole course and considered your next steps in your work experience journey.

You’ve identified some key goals and worked out the actions you need to take to achieve them. You’ve also considered how to maximise your work experience once it is finished and you are taking your next step, and you’ve looked at the importance of personal resilience in dealing with rejection.

You should now 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.

Congratulations! You have come to the end of the course. Don’t forget that to finish the course and get your badge you will need to pass this week’s quiz.
