This is the same assignment with the one I have ordered yesterday but another student’s. So I need this to be different with the one I ordered yesterday due to different information provided, and… maybe make a bit different in structure? if you can. Thanks.

The following minimum profile fields must be completed:

ENTRY 4: Career Management Plan

This entry consists of two parts:

Part 1: Career Action Plan (approx. 750 words)
Find a position which you believe you will be qualified for and well suited to five years after graduation. This could be the same position you used for the information interview or something different. Following the example provided on the course homepage, write an Action Plan which details the steps you will take to ensure that you would be the successful candidate for this position five years after you graduate. Scan the advertisement and job description for this position and attach it to the documentation already completed. You may need to contact someone in the organisation to request a position description, or check the organisation%u0432%u0402%u2122s website. (Consider the organisation you referred to in Assignments 1 and 2.)

Part 2: Responses to Selection Criteria (approx. 750-1000 words)
When applying for positions throughout your career, you will commonly be asked to address certain ‘selection criteria’ as part of submitting your application, along with a cover letter and curriculum vitae (CV). There are many common selection criteria that can be asked, either as part of your written application, or during an interview process.

For Part 3 of this assessment, you are required to address all four selection criteria below as they relate to the skills, knowledge and experience that you have now, as a current University student (i.e. don’t write your responses as if you are applying for the position you found in your action plan, write them as if you are applying for a position now. This position could be any position suitable to your current qualifications and experience.)

Please address the following criteria:
%u0432%u0402%u045E Highly developed written communication skills, including the ability to draft clear and concise documentation;

%u0432%u0402%u045E Demonstrated organisational ability and initiative, including experience in prioritising and meeting deadlines, often with competing demands;

%u0432%u0402%u045E Strong interpersonal skills and a demonstrated ability to successfully communicate with a diverse range of people at all levels of an organisation;

%u0432%u0402%u045E Demonstrated experience in working collaboratively in a team based environment.

Note: The above selection criteria have been sourced from real position descriptions for entry level positions within a corporate environment.

The response to each selection criteria should be around 250 words in length, and use the STAR model to address your suitability in each criteria. The STAR model follows the following format:

1. Situation – Outline a specific circumstance where you developed the particular experience or
used the required skills or qualities. Set the context of the situation.
2. Task – What was your role? What did you have to do?
3. Actions – What did you do and how did you do it?
4. Results – What did you achieve? What were the results of what you did?

The above model should be written using an appropriate (paragraph) format and should succinctly describe a particular situation that provides clear and concise evidence to demonstrate where you have used the particular skill or knowledge in real life, with a tangible, reportable outcome. You may choose to format this information using a table format. If so, landscape page layout is recommended.

Please note that the experience you draw from to address the criteria can include experiences at university, in part-time/full time work, community roles such as in a church group, volunteer positions or in sporting teams.

Your response should be very carefully edited to ensure no grammatical or spelling errors – with increasingly high numbers of applicants for positions, employers will disregard an application immediately if errors such as spelling are present, no matter how good the content!

The STAR model will be covered in the career management topic in the course, and you can also find more information at the following websites (and many others):
