Here are some tips for Part C of your Reflective Journals which is due on Monday 3rd of October 2016.
Part C is all about Decision Making, specifically related to your career. There are not many people, especially students, who have the opportunity to really think
about their career plan and how the decisions they make impact this. Career plans are not designed to be set in stone, but are flexible and able to guide you through
your decision making in the short and long term.
In this assessment we want you to reflect on the aspects that influence your career decision making.
1. Identify the key elements of career decision-making, in the context of life planning;
What are the important parts of your life that need to consider when thinking about your career? Think about your self-awareness in Part A. How does work fit into your
life? Think about your career within your life plans/goals. For example, do you want to travel and work overseas forever or do you want to stay in one place or both?
Perhaps studies influence where you work.
Reflect on your decision making for WIL and selecting your work placement. What influenced your decisions?
2. Relate self-awareness to knowledge of different opportunities;
This is where the completion of the VIA Character Strengths survey can benefit you.
Using your top character strengths, your self-knowledge from Part A and your knowledge of opportunities from Part B, how will you use your self-knowledge to make use
of the opportunities which are available. For example, if your top strengths are Creativity, Curiosity, Judgment, Perspective or Love of Learning that might lead you
to pursue certain career paths. If your top strength are other things you might choose other paths. Perhaps you are on the path of learning and wish to develop your
weaknesses as well.
Alternatively, you might discuss your interests in relation to different opportunities. If you are someone who wants to travel for work, relate this to the
3. Evaluate how personal priorities may impact upon future career options;
Do you need to work close to family? You might decide to return to your home town to be close to your family and friends, this could limit the types of jobs you apply
for but could make you happy for other reasons. Perhaps you have a large family to support and money is a big factor in the career path you take.
4. Devise a short/medium-term career development action plan;
Use a table or excel spreadsheet to outline the next steps in YOUR future career plan. Think about the different stages in your career. What are you going to in 6
months time, a year, 2 years or even 5, 10 or 50 years? Perhaps you could change jobs for WIL 2. Reflect on your decision making process at each stage.
Another aspect to include in your plan is strategies in how you will reach each career goal. If I want to be General Manager of a hotel, what are the steps to
achieving this? What do I need to do to move up each step?
5. Identify tactics for addressing the role of chance in career development.
How might you be ready for a chance or opportunity? For example, a chance meeting with someone who could positively influence your career.
Think about your resume or ‘elevator speech’ (if you are not sure what this is please look it up). If someone came up to you at a networking event and it turned into
an on-the-spot interview, how are you going to impress. Are you prepared for these opportunities?
It could be right here at William Angliss. Recruiters might be coming out to hire students. Are you ready for this opportunity? How?
6. Review changing plans and ideas on an ongoing basis.
How often will you review your plans? Will you write your plans down? Will you change them when the situation changes? Will you consult with your
advisors/mentors…people you trust and confide it? How flexible is your plan?
As always, let me know if you need any assistance with your assessments.
