Dear Fiona and Chris
First of all, I would like to thank both of you for creating such a beneficial workshop (was held on Friday, February 17). I found it very helpful and motivational.
Well, since I’m progressing towards Warwick Skills Portfolio Award, I have decided to include P9 into my blogging.
In the following post, I would like to set the action points I want to pursue in the next 4 weeks:
- Get my CV checked in the C&S Centre. I have already attended effective CV workshop, but it seems I was too bussy to take it further. It will be useful to do for my job and internship applications.
- Since November, I have been focusing too much on internships for the forthcoming summer. As a research tool, I used mainly myAdvantage website, Targetjobs, milkround, ratemyplacement, etc. So far, I have sent 17 applications – 6 of them already unsuccessful. In the slide regarding exploring, there were mentioned other websites, especially www.prospects.ac.uk and also the focus on sector pages. I am mainly interested in management consultancy, so I will do more research on smaller firms within that area. After the research, I will prepare the CV, adjust the current covering letter and approach them with my interest in internships.
These are the two goals I decided to set during the workshop. However I’m not sure about the mock interview. Should I make an appointment before sending the emails to potential consultancy firms, or it is better to wait for their replies?
Thank you very much for reading the blog and I’m looking forward to receiving your comments.
