The second, “Growth Objectives” describes what you will add to your expertise, knowledge, skills and development in this area or how you will be changed by the experience.
Describe what you will learn or what competencies you will gain from the activities you are engaged in for your internship. EXAMPLE: I will gain expertise in the development of job descriptions and increase my ability to effectively communicate with an organization’s employees.
An acceptable journal entry will be comprised of two sections: the Log and Reflection. Log Section: ◦ A job log reports all of the activities that you have done for a specific work period.
