In this Class Project Assignment, take the time to Reflect, Recall, & Record your successes using some type of personalized FORMAT to tell the stories of your achievements & accomplishments. Decide if your style is more of a formal & structured approach, or more of a free-form design.
In whatever approach you decide, be sure & number your stories. Attempt at least 10 – 15, or as many as you can unearth. AND – give each story a title that makes sense to you & helps trigger your memory when needed.
If using a more structured design, set it up using the following format:
Achievement # - brainstorm with yourself to come up with 10 or more successes
Title: something you will relate to this success
Situation: set the scene including back story if needed
Torpedoes: any challenges that could prevent a successful outcome
Action: outline the specifics you did & who & how others were involved
Results: the outcome of what you did
Skillsets: any job content or SOFT skills you used
Notes Unique to this achievement: jot down anything that you want to remember about this accomplishment
If you prefer to use a more free-form approach – simply tell your story writing a narrative of what happened. You don’t need to be concerned about spelling, punctuation, or grammar. Simply organize your thoughts so that you cover all the S.T.A.R.S. points in some way.
