Situation - what was the situation and when did it take place?
Task - what task was it, and what was the objective?
Action - what action did you take to achieve this?
Results - what happened as a result of your action? Section 1.2 allows you some space to think about the skills that you already have. In a recruitment situation you will be expected to be able to provide evidence of a time when you have demonstrated any skills or capabilities that you are claiming. Weaknesses Now select three skills from the transferable skills framework that you can improve upon and create an action plan to develop this skill. When defining your personal brand it is just as important to identify strengths as it is to identify weaknesses. During an interview you will often be asked what your biggest weakness is. The interviewer will want to see that you have thought about this carefully and considered ways to develop that weakness. Values Write down the things that interest you. Are any of them really unique? Set yourself some goals using SMART targets:

Your values are key to your success within your career. Top Tip: Break your interests up into three categories and ask yourself what you like doing:
