- you should keep a log of all ‘activities’ you complete – these can be courses, work experience, volunteering, trips, etc which you take part in/complete.
- keep a record of the date, location and content of each activity.
- you should also reflect on/answer the following:
What did you learn?
What was the purpose of the activity?
What was the impact of the activity?
What was your next steps?
You may find it useful to look over this log when you are completing an application form/CV and before you attend an interview – it will serve as a reminder of your personal development over the years.
Some people keep this log electronically, perhaps on their phone.
