What would of made it even more awesome 🚀

You worked out a plan, which most people don't do. Well done. There could have been more depth to this plan, specifically looking at how you could develop your skills and knowledge of the job role. Hopefully, call with your expert has opened your eyes to what needs to be done.

What would of made it even more awesome 🚀

Your final statement on where you would like to be in 5 years was a bit vague Dan. Can you see what I mean?

"I'd like to be comfortably working in a creative environment where I can use my skills to the best of my ability and have fun while doing it."

I think you've learnt a lot more about the industry since this moment - the feedback from the next module says so. I think it will be really crucial for you to up your research of the job roles in the sector so you're crystal clear on the work that takes place in the Software Development world.


Module 3 | My Chosen Industry

What was awesome 👏🏼

You're strongest performance was on this module, after a sticky start trying to send an email and getting hold of Vicky...not sure what happened there. Your reflection on the experience and the feedback from Vicky is great 👌🏻. It seems you learnt loads from this. Well done for grabbing the opportunity. We'll build on this during the next Unit.

What would of made it even more awesome 🚀

Just getting that email slick and having the confidence to figure out what you would like to gain from the call - coming up with questions - otherwise I think you smashed this one. Well done
