There are lots of ways you could leverage your experiences on MyPocketSkill for your career.
Nowadays, there are so many avenues to promote yourself to employers, which is both an opportunity but also could result in you feeling overwhelmed at times. This article explores the different options and pathways for you to promote yourself to employers.
LinkedIn is a fantastic resource for gaining employment. Self-promotion can often lead opportunities you might not even realise would be there.
Firstly, you could change your LinkedIn tagline to promote your MyPocketSkill achievements such as the below example.
Additionally, in you can list your achievements in the experience section of MyPocketSkill. Although there's no perfect way to do this, generally it's good to structure your achievements in terms of what you did, who was involved, and what the results were. It's good to include numbers and percentages in your achievements as it gives people a sense of scale of the work you have done. In terms of explaining results, it can sometimes be hard to quantify the work you do, especially since some tasks might have a more indirect result. In this case, it's okay to focus on things like having received positive feedback, or you might want to track the results of your efforts over a longer period or reach out and send a friendly message to your client and ask if the work you did had any positive results.
It's totally acceptable to write your MyPocketSkill experiences into your resume. Once again, a good strategy is to write out your experiences in terms of what you did, who was involved, and what the results were.
The below example outlines how you might write your experiences:
November 2021 - May 2022
Make sure that you tailor your experiences to the jobs you apply for. It's good to assume that employers don't spend too long reading your resume, so you want to put the information which is most relevant to them up front, make sure your resume is formatted neatly, is free from spelling and grammar errors, and is not too long (1-2 pages). It's also great to use action verbs to describe the work that you've done such as "Lead", "Enhanced", "Improved" and many others.
Overall, there are many opportunities to leverage work you've completed to promote yourself as a competent, engaged and interested young person. For more information on how to write a great CV, you can read the UCAS guide on how to write a CV or Student Room's Guide on Writing a Killer CV.
