Good luck![/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Mission 1″][iconbox type=”11″ icon=”ws-progress-0″ i_color=”#0099cc” title=”Resilience Test”]Resilience is a key attribute required in the workplace. Sometimes, unexpected results occur, projects go astray, relationships become fraught, and teams become unproductive. To be able to bounce back from these upsets and to learn from them is a core skill which will support your career throughout its many twists and turns.


This mission asks you to complete a resiliency questionnaire and then provide some feedback on your feelings about the results.

So your mission is:

  • Take the Resilience Test Here
  • REQUIRED EVIDENCE – Identify your highest and lowest scoring resilience trait as revealed by the test and comment on your perception of the accuracy of these results.

Elevator Pitch”]The most important topic you will ever need to communicate is YOU! In order to maximise the success of your career throughout your career, you must be able to effectively articulate who you are, what you can do and what you have to offer.


Create a 60 sec. elevator pitch about YOU

An elevator pitch is a brief persuasive presentation that you use to spark interest, in this case in yourself. The presentation will usually be a video, but you could also record a podcast, create an animation or even record a song! Whatever the format, it is crucial that the viewer is engaged in what you have to say and is able to quickly understand who you are and what you are capable of. Having completed a number of careercred badges and completed the first 2 missions in this badge, you should have plenty to say about yourself!
