Reflect on Past Experiences

Career Services - Getting to Know YOU!


Write down ideas or draw pictures to identify significant experiences or memorable moments from the following areas of your life:

  • Work and Volunteer Experience
  • Education and Training
  • Extra-Curricular Activities and Hobbies
  • Home Life

Review the information you have compiled.  Why were the experiences you identified so special?  What was it about those moments that made you happy or proud?  How can you take what you have learned about yourself through this exercise and apply it to your career exploration process? 

Looking at your significant experiences can help you to identify your areas of interest, skills and abilities that you would like to use and develop, academic subjects you find intriguing, what you value most in your life/work and environments that make you feel fulfilled.
