FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What headings should I use in the essay?
It is strongly recommended that you use the following headings in your essay. This should also help you to structure your essay:
Even though this is a reflective essay, you still need to use theories and concepts in organizational behaviour. If you do not properly explain and discuss theories and concepts from box A and B by making reference to the academic literature (such as the essential textbook), you will likely fail the essay or get a reduced mark.
What is the difference between the role and tasks?
Your role is your formally assigned title. Your tasks are the activities and duties you carry out when actually working.
What do knowledge, skills and capacities mean?
These terms refer to the abilities and competencies required to carry out your tasks well. When you describe this, do not just draw from what is stated in your formal job description (such as the education level required to carry out the role). You need to refer to the skills and capacitates that are required to actually carry out the work. Sometimes the capacity is an emotion, such as patience or enthusiasm (this is called ‘emotional labour’ in the literature), which is not always explicitly stated in your job description.
Shall I write about the difficulties of the job from my perspective or from the perspective of the organization I work for?
This is a reflective essay about your own work experience. So you need to write about the difficulties that you face from YOUR perspective, not from the perspective of the organization - although of course, they may be linked.
How many references are required?
You need to make reference to at least 2 chapters in the essential textbook. These are the minimum required references. You can of course use more academic references, but the quality of your answer is more important than the quantity of your references. Note: You have to prioritise reading the chapters in the essential textbook rather than other sources.
Do I need references for the section where I describe my tasks? No, you don’t necessarily need to reference this as you are describing your tasks, drawing from your own experience.
Do I need references for the sections on ‘causes’ and ‘recommendations’? Yes you will need references here because you will have to draw from theories and concepts to explain the causes of the difficulties and to make the recommendations. In these two sections, you will have to engage in a discussion, comparing and contrasting the ‘managerial’ and ‘critical’ perspectives in organizational behaviour. Remember, if your essay does not sufficiently discuss theories or concepts from the module, you will probably get a reduced mark.
