"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will."
(Vince Lambardi)

Getting Started

The purpose of these learning activities is to allow you to assess your own knowledge and skills in relation to the job requirements of positions within the Swaggies Company, our simulated business environment. Your responses will form part of your ongoing assessment for a number of competencies. Refer to the link called Assessment on the Navigation bar.

By completing all the learning activities you will meet some of the performance criteria for the following units in a Certificate III in Business.
Organise personal work priorities and development (BSBWOR301A)
Organise workplace information (BSBINM301A)
Contribute to effective workplace relationships (BSBFLM303C)


Rules of Etiquette

You are welcome to browse other participant's responses in their portfolios, but your reflections need to be your own thoughts. Your teacher will provide more information about how to use your portfolio pages.

The Process

Step One:

One of your first tasks will be to view the video clip below. The Video Clip "Job Interview" shows two different interviews to prospective employees.  Reflect and think about the differences between the two interviews and the types of questions the Interviewer asked, also how the Interviewees responded. Make some notes about your opinion on the appropriateness of the questions asked by the Interviewer and the way the interview was conducted. Think about how you would feel if you were at the interview.
