This assessment is designed

| October 14, 2019

This assessment is designed to be used by you as an ongoing working portfolio to assist you in identifying your career goals and appropriate organisations you wish to pursue for internship or employment positions. Writing in first person (‘me’, ‘I’, ‘mine; etc.) is permitted however, you should remember that this is a university assessment and not a descriptive story. A minimum of five (5) well integrated academic references is required.
 
Part A – Report
The following may assist you to structure your portfolio:
Executive summary
Remember that an Executive Summary of a report is just that, a summary. It contains a statement of report purpose and an overview of the actual and specific findings. Generally, it should be no longer than one page and does not count towards the word limit of your report. The Executive Summary can only be written after you have completed your report. Write in past tense (e.g. The purpose of this report was to …). If an Executive Summary is well written the reader should be able to understand the main points, findings, and conclusions of the actual report without having to read the full report. Be sure to check the Executive Summary Quick Guide for tips http://scu.edu.au/teachinglearning/download.php?doc_id=12780&site_id=301&file_ext=.pdf
