Task 1: Creating a Professional Profile
• Begin working on creating your own Professional Profile – LinkedIn, targeting your chosen industry
• Compare your profile with that of other students and discuss your findings
What is a Professional Profile? A professional profile is a summary of your skills, strengths, and key experiences. It also should convey what you are seeking or what you have to offer the person reading it. The professional profile can be used as your elevator speech—the in-person introduction that serves as a starting-point to networking at job fairs or professional gatherings. Or, it can be used in a LinkedIn profile or other written materials to garner interest in what you have to offer in a professional capacity.
Task 2: Present your Professional Profile
• Create a 10-minute presentation on you, demonstrating your Professional Profile on LinkedIn and highlighting the skills you can bring to your chosen industry in the Australian market – your presentation topic is: “What I have to offer the Australian workforce”
• You will do your presentation in Topic 4 of this module and will be marked against the criteria below
• Select a panel of 4 students to provide you with peer feedback and have them complete the attached Student Feedback Form
NOTE: You will be planning a TED-style event with your classmates in Topic 3 in preparation for your presentations in Topic 4. Your student feedback sheets need to be attached to your final assessment submission.
