Subject: MOVING FORWARD IN PROFESSIONAL JOURNEY
My prime motivation in this initiative is addressing the skills and potential I have to convince HR
to hire me. Skills are essential in every profession because they expose the abilities of an individual
to fit in a particular job opportunity. However, some challenges occur when writing down your
experiences, including; academic performance, job search readiness, and professional readiness.
The problems limit individuals from moving forward in their career path. I have gained skills and
knowledge through my learning that has empowered me as well as prepare me for professional
Academic performance evaluation and target GPA
My GPA is 3.5, which is way higher than the cut of point, which is 3.4. (Adams, year) my goal is
to beat applicants with a higher GPA of 3.8 based on my technical skills. I have been able to
achieve this GPA through hard work, discipline, and managing my time well, creating enough time
for my academics. I am prepared to use more time revising all that I learn in order to achieve my
goal of going beyond the applicants with a GPA of 3.8.
Job readiness evaluation and improvements to prepare me for the job market
In evaluating my job readiness using the Job Readiness Grade Sheet, I found my average
performance in job search readiness at 75%. The results have proven to me that I am improving
and getting in a better position to acquire a job after college. The assessment at the beginning was
below 75%, and hence it shows improvements that can further be improved. The performance from
the grade sheet can be attributed to the efforts I have made to join a professional group where I
found a mentor who has been very helpful in preparing me for the employment world. My goal is
to acquire sufficient networks from social media and sites like LinkedIn to promote my readiness
Professional skills and improvements on skills relevant for professional readiness
I have gained various skills throughout my learning from which have allowed me to have a good
mastery of professional skills. The skills I have acquired have prepared me professionally included
leadership skills which I have developed from leading the study group we created with my friends.
The group has also improved my teamwork skills as well as communication skills. I have, however,
realized I need to improve on my work ethic in order to be able to do my work and interact
effectively on a professional level. My goal is to acquire more knowledge on social ethics from
my mentor and the professional group I joined.
