Choosing a proper and successful lifetime career path is not an easy task to accomplish. Curriculum Vitae is considered to be the first step while starting any career – only in case you can make a prominent CV self-presentation demonstrating appropriate skills and abilities, as well as experience, you have a chance to acquire a perfect career of your dream. Considering all this, I decided to take a Curriculum plus unit as a means to enhance and develop my resume as well as realize my personal and professional skills, work on them and improve them in the process of studying.
I consider myself to be a self-motivated person, however, I should admit that my father has had a great influence on my decision to enter the university – in fact, he inspired me to do this as soon as possible. Observing how successful he has become because of his quality education and personal skills, I realized that I am the only one responsible for my life and if I want to reach success, I need to work hard and study as much as possible in the field of my interest. The latter being business, it also presupposes some experience and practical knowledge. Thus, I was lucky to work in our family business and gain some basic practical knowledge in numerous aspects of a company – managing, accounting, teamwork, dealing with customers, etc. I believe now, that getting a degree is an important part of a successful career process as it helps to open my potential in business area and develop a variety of skills. I am pretty sure that after graduating from the Southampton Solent University and taking its Curriculum plus unit, my career opportunities will be greatly expanded and I will be able to find a job of my dream.
Besides being involved into family business, I also had an opportunity to gain basic theoretical knowledge at the Oxford Business College. Moreover, I also studied the course of Sport Coaching and Development in 2010. I strongly believe that this experience contributed to my business, leadership, communication and teamwork skills – I feel comfortable about working in team now, as well as managing and being responsible for any business or related tasks.
My professional experience also includes working in the General Lighting Company (GLC) and Al Rajhi bank. This was a wonderful opportunity to be involved in a large retail environment. Consequently, I decided to pursue a career in this field so what I am expecting from this course is some preparation to apply for a graduate trainee manager scheme and gaining some valuable knowledge about getting a successful career in general.
I think that I possess strong enough leadership skills for further managerial work as this is something I really strive for– I have always been motivated by success and potential fortune I could get out of it. However, I do realize that I am required to study and work hard to become who I want to be and it does not scary me as I love challenges and I am ready to face them.
All in all, I crave for self-development and success in life, accompanied, as usual, with some obstacles (and I feel absolutely confident to overcome them). So that is the main reason I would like to take the Curriculum plus unit as my further step to my career path.
