An essential aspect of professional practice is in-depth objective analysis of one’s own strengths and weaknesses. This, combined with a clear strategy for presenting one’s skills and abilities to potential employers or clients, is critical to future success.
The aim of this unit is to support students in making the transition from study to employment or freelance work. In previous study (Unit 3: Professional Practice) students explored the broad areas of professional practice within creative media production, and preparing for employment. Building upon this, students will now apply their skills and knowledge to the development of a strategy for their future career, whether in employment or self-employed.
Topics included within this unit are: career plans, curriculum vitae (CV) writing, interview skills, self-promotional material, legal frameworks, business planning and social and professional networks.
