Understanding your assignment brief

This article will give you guidance on the peer review to create a strategy for getting a job in wellness.

Assignment summary:

Now it’s time to bring together everything you’ve learned so far and produce a simple strategy for getting a job in wellness.

Your assignment

Research one job in the wellness industry that you would like to apply for (it doesn’t have to be a current vacancy, just a job that you know exists). Produce a simple strategy that includes how you would find the job, how your strengths meet the job criteria and, where possible, any networking opportunities to support your strategy.

Share your plan with your peers.

At the beginning of the text field in the next step, include the following details:

  • The job you are applying for
  • The hiring company
  • Link to job description (if there is one)

Below this information, submit your strategy. It’s a good idea to write the whole plan out first and then copy and paste it into the text box.

In the text box, you can only submit text and URLs (which will not appear as hyperlinks).
