P9 Final Entry

Having completed the workshop and commented on my progress I have come to the end and my final entry.

I have addressed all three action plans to some degree; I'm not gonna lie and say I'm now perfectly aware of what I want to do and that its the most amzing thing but I have addressed my career through the lense of my current skills and what my aspirations are.

1. I have gone back over myself and what skill set i posess. Where it comes from (work, study, social). I still found a lesser achievement in social. As well as that I found that what I looked for from my career was a stable high wage job (theyre hard to come by the way, ive got my work cut out), satisfaction, sense of belonging (at a company level and in my team), oppurtinities abroad et.

2. I've broadened my repertoire of knowledge of commercial awareness by picking up the Financial Times and on occasion The Economist because I find them to be different views on similair topics but they allow me to see things better and so I know another perspective

3. Also as i said in 1 I found my achievement in social was somewhat lacking still. I went to netwrok with Bloomberg employees at the SU atrium about 2 days and found it very beneficial. It gave me an insight to culture of company and skills they look for; basically working on what I was bad at.

In terms of impprovement for 3. I intend to continue attending more networking sessions thus improving on my attainment of skills through socialising. For 2 Ive basically explained. However, I think come October (hopefully if im still here) I'll subscribe to The Financial TImes who have good offers for Economics students which I can also receive; especially as I will require that knowledge when applying to internships.

P9 Reflective Entry

After another week I have found no change in my routine.

I have not done anything to address my action plan. Mostly due to gym. Going to work on that

P9 Reflective Entry

After a week of blogging my action plan to be totally hounest Ive only addressed 2 of my action plan points.

The second point probably had the strongest response over this past week as I have taken to reading the Student newspaper The Gateway quite rigourously as I find it interesting and informative unlike some broadsheets. It gives student perspective and allows me to think of making an informed decison. It also does increase commercial awareness by telling of recent events and goings on in different sectors and industries.

As to my point about gaining more skills through socialising I have attended a bright network session on assesment centres and the interview process in general. In it we did a lot of team work and other social aspects came through which I felt I learnt from.

With my first point as I have not done anything interms of applications after the workshop I plan to put aside some spare time and think nd reflect on the direction I'm taking why for what reasons etc, How I can benefit from the experiences I have and what I learnt from them. Using the reflective bookmark given out in the wrokshop essentially.

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
