Need to discuss what is the different between professional and professionalism.
The suggested word count for this section only includes the introduction and overview of professionalism.
Introduction – should be an overview of the whole e-portfolio (normally this gets written just before submission – you never introduce someone you don’t know) Think of it like an executive summary
Contents page – this is just a list of where information is this gives you an opportunity to make sure the marker does not miss anything and can be used to explain what is include in the word count and what is included in the appendix.
Overview of professionalism – this is your interpretation from the research that you have done throughout this module on professionalism within the global management. It can include references to our job searches, self-assessments, assessment centre research or other further reading.
Section B / Reasons for skill choice
(Aprox: 650 words)
• EVIDENCE OF SELF AWARENESS OF YOUR CURRENT SKILLS ( eg ‘HARD’ & ‘SOFT’ SKILLS)
***Note for the writer: I have hard time with working in group if you want add this on the essay but in the same time I can manage working with it if it necessary …
GRADUATE TRAINEE JOB SEARCH WITHIN ‘GLOBAL COMPANIES’ eg HSBC (3-5 JOB SPECS)
• COMPARISON OF RESULTS
Evidence of self-awareness – this is a critique using the self-assessment tools discussed in the seminars, other self-assessment tools that you have found by yourself and if appropriate skills listed by the sectors institute that you wish to work in (i.e. CIPD, CIM etc.)
Graduate trainee job search – you need to introduce the 3-5 roles that you wish to peruse and why you have chosen them i.e. are they near home? Is it is high wage, are you interested in the brands/products? Etc.
Comparison of results – would be an analysis of all the soft skills that you think need to be improved to allow you to be successful within the roles you wish to pursue. (You can use your TNA 1 in this section if you wish or the next section depending on your individual word count.)
Section B / Evidence of skills development and evaluation
(Aprox: 1,350 words) the evidence should be Videos or Screen shots or records links
• IDENTIFICATION OF THREE MAIN SKILLS THAT YOU CAN IMPROVE ON
• EVIDENCE OF MEASURES PUT IN PLACE TO IMPROVE SKILLS WITHIN THE SEMESTER
• EVALUATION OF THE PROCESS
Identification of three main skills- This can be TNA 1 or a more detailed overview as to what the skills are those that need developing.
Evidence of measures put in place to improve skills – This relates to TNA 2, this is where you need to consider how you will improve your three chosen skills over the semester. You need to complete five actions to improve each skill and provide evidence.
Please note: if you are going to use your assessment centre as evidence you may consider this has improved more than one skill, you can use the same action as long as you tailor individual bits of evidence to reflect this.
Evaluation of the process – This gives you the opportunity to discuss where you were, where you are now after this process and what you need to do improve before you apply for the role. We would not expect to fix all your development needs in just three months but we need to see that you being aware of what you need to do in the future.
Section C / Future indicators of Skill Development and continued commitment to developing management (Aprox: 650 words)
Review of global organisations – this is a critique of how global companies support employees to be more global, i.e. leadership and development, cross cultural training etc. It may be beneficial to look at the job roles and the companies you discussed earlier to see what they offer to develop managers after the graduate programme.
Further qualification/training search – this is an opportunity to see what qualification that you feel would support your career that may not be offered by the companies that you wish to work for.
Career development – This concludes your portfolio and is that discusses where you see yourself in the future and different avenues you can pursue.
