Reflection on my own skills in relation to the above skills
I used Gibb’s Reflective Cycle (1988) to find out skills that are existed and are needed for further career development.
Here in this essay writing and of higher education required skills summarizing I recognized several other skills existed and to be developed for further career. These skills comprise ICT skills, Problem-solving, Communication skills, Mathematical skills, Self-management and development, Conflict Resolving, Managing tasks, Critical thinking.
ICT skills are capabilities of using several software and tools related to studies and responsibilities of voluntary work or jobs (Williams et al., 2020). These skills include the MS word application use, PowerPoint software to prepare presentation slides and use of the internet to search information for research work. Communication skills are very important to communicate with the team members and with the manager in the office. This includes verbal, written and face-to-face communication.
I felt very free while I was writing essays for the assessment and education. I learned much more about the use of the software and gathered various information related to the research and required HE skills for the students at higher education level at university and college. I found the time management skills very fine that I didn’t realize before. This skill helped me very much to attain the perfection of writing the essay (Williams et al., 2020).
I am benefitted much from having opportunities of the skills acquiring about the ICT tools and software. Communication with the teacher improved my verbal skills of communication. I found some lacks within me and I promised to develop these in further career development approaches.
Analysis of the skills completed through a series of justification and audit test procedures by me. I participated in the Skill Audit test to find out the existed skills and rating them helped me to realize the states of these skills within me.
Time management, Decision-making power, Critical analysis, Analytical ability, Customer Relations etc. fields are related to voluntary work or jobs or in the learning periods of the student life. In the industrial workplace conflict between the employees are common and I managed to achieve the skills to resolve the disputes. In the accounting section, I needed to learn how to do summation and other mathematical accounting. Wherever I went to collect data for the business, I needed to acquire other skills aforementioned in the section.
