P9 Action Plan

After attending the workshop for career planning I have created my three point action plan on how I intend to use the information given to me to improve upon myself, that is as follows:

1. I'm going to critically analyze my skill set and match it to what employers are looking for in their job descritptions when it comes to applying for internships and grad jobs in the future.

2. The workshop brought to attention my disparity in commercial awareness skills. So I need to work on that. I reckon reading a broader range of materials will help. The Gateway is distributed regularly. i think Ill give it a read next time I see it.

3. Also I've noticed that my skill set is heaily dependant on work that I do. I tend to pick up less knowledge and other useful stuff when it comes to socialising. I dont think its becuase of lack of interest; maybe its just the topics I discuss when I'm with friends. I guess that I should possibly attend more socials by the Warwick Finance society for instance to discuss whats going on. Also it might improve other skills such as Commercial Awareness

    Apologies for the delay in replying to you. I think you have you have made some brilliant reflective steps. I would recommend that you perhaps register for the Commerical Awareness session if possible that is running on monday 12th of MArch 11.30 – 1.30. This will not only talk you through commerical awareness but look at professional ettiquette too. I would also do research in small chunks but regualrly so look at the economist or bbc news business pages as a starting point. You can also look at sector information on the prospects website www.prospects.ac.uk
    Good luck
