Ask for Specifics – and Reflect
In reviewing your past year’s activities and accomplishments, pick the three things you think you did particularly well and three that you feel provided challenges or difficulties.
Ask your supervisor for specific feedback in regard to each.
For your successes – what did you do particularly well or was there anything that stood out to the supervisor as exceptional in regard to a particular project?
For those challenges – what might you have done differently from their perspective to address the challenge?
Identify what you need you learned from successes and challenges in the past year – practice reflective learning.
Be prepared to offer your reflections on how you might approach projects and assignments differently in the future based on what you have learned in the past year.
