Self-Reflection Activity

Self-reflection is an important component for continued personal growth and professional development. It provides us with the opportunity to:

  • Recognize the development of new skills
  • Raise our level of awareness of current strengths and areas that require improvement 
  • Transform our experiences into further action via setting short-term and long-term goals
  • Identify how our experiences have led to our growth and development

We strongly encourage all students to complete the self-reflection exercise below. Students can reference this reflection when creating their resumes and portfolio, making career decisions and preparing for job interviews. 

Recommended Self-Reflection Exercise

Action: answer one or more of the following questions

Describe your next steps for further developing the competencies you have targeted to develop
