  • Thanks, everyone for your input, the word cloud is looking great! Mainly came down to satisfaction, achievement, happiness, recognition, freedom, money and fulfilment. I posted the word cloud on my LinkedIn, should be an interesting insight for the professional community!

  • Thanks everyone, glad you enjoyed it! See you in the webinar this week!

  • Our credential process at Deakin measures these professional skills: https://www.deakinco.com/credentials

  • Thanks for sharing this insight @MartinCrowe you are right it can be tricky to shift into a full digital citizen mindset. I think Covid has kicked this into action much quicker then we expected. Many companies at least in Australia are all working from home and using digital tools to communicate. See you in the webinar hopefully!

  • Thanks for the feedback and good to hear you learned a lot about yourself @IngridLarsen !

  • Why were they so difficult @zoraidacolorado ?

  • Good to hear!

  • See you in there @GEOFFROWE

  • Yes sure is. Hopefully will be okay for you anyway.

  • Thanks @AlexHarrington good to know, sometimes it is just about reflecting and making yourself aware of your skills. See you at the webinar!

  • You will be able to catch the recording after.

  • Knowing the WHY about your career can really help to set the direction you will take moving forward. Are you in your current job just for $ or do you really love it and have a passion for it?
    It is harder than ever before to be able to work in something you love due to the pandemic, we just need $ to put food on the table.
    Hopefully though in the future once...

  • The recording will be available afterwards!

  • Will be good to have you on board!

  • :) no problems at all.

  • No problems thanks for joining.

  • The recording will be available for watching later also :)

  • Hope it gives you some interesting information to work with!

  • Will see you there @DanielWilliams

  • Hope you enjoy it @AnnaPhan

  • Great see you there @BilalChami !

  • Thanks @TraceyP , by the time we get through with the webinar. You will be ready to roll for the next job interview and crush it!
    We just sent out an email today as a reminder.
    I am sure there will be another, if you register now!

  • Hi @SophieR the webinar is yet to occur :) It will be on the 30th and you will be able to check it out, again even after its complete.

  • Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the course!

    Hope you are surviving the pandemic!

    Have you had any troubles during this time in terms of losing your job and really need to sell yourself better in the job market? Or maybe looking for a promotion? Well, you are in the right spot.

    Let's kick things off and you can tell me about yourself, your profession and...

  • Hi @PhilipM just, for now, try not to make it too difficult with criterion. It is just a starting point.

    Thanks for the feedback some details on what a beginner or advanced is, could be useful. This will come later on though if you choose to complete professional skills credentials at Deakin University.

    try to use this tool as a way to see...

  • @MICHAELMEYER Ideally we want to try to use this tool as a way to see where you sit at the current moment. A self-perceived view, which is combined with a description of some workplace evidence/outputs you have produced to back that up.

    If I am trying to determine my communication skill, what workplace tasks have I don't which demonstrate this and as...

  • Thanks @KenGilbert you can put this up on Padlet also. I respect your wish to put it up on OneDrive instead :)
    Great work it looks fantastic though. Do you think you have been conservative on the levels? As most of them are proficient :) But I think they are more likely advanced.

  • How did you go with your skills audit @KC ?

  • Thanks @KenGilbert yes we just spotted this also! Thanks for the heads up :) it will be remedied soon!

  • Good job @KenGilbert with your 'Why' think about why you do what you do. Maybe?
    "I have a deep curiosity with technology which has driven my passion for helping people to use technology to positively impact their lives" ?

  • @AnaMolina not too sure what a death doula is, but sounds like an interesting profession!

  • Good one @DavidCooper you're why could just use a little tweaking.
    How about this?
    "Through my passion for technology, I want to enable individuals to be able to enrich their lives and productivity in everyday tasks"

  • Thanks for that @KateNova not seen this Ted talk!

  • I like your 'why' @GrahameHuxley its really around providing great working solutions enabling organisations to achieve greatness!

  • I like this @DANIELLEHAWSON "let me run yours" :)

  • Just pinned my location at Deakin University :)

  • Good luck @KimberlyLammin hope you find some interesting insights!

    We are going to explore professional skills and capabilities, reflect on your strengths and weaknesses and explore what your success means to...
