Assessment Task 1

This assessment is an industry study. You will need to find businesses that you could see yourself work for.

Task 1:

Look into the yellow pages and collect details for 20 business:

  • List 10 businesses with a print or graphic design background
  • List 10 businesses with a digital media focus. Web, adverts, film and media

Make sure to have business name, type of business, contact details incl email and web address.

Task 2:

Develop a short questionnaire. Have a minimum of 10 questions. Your questions should be able to be answered on the phone or by e-mail.

The aim of your questionnaire is to

  • find out what businesses in target industries are looking for in employees.

You can use the questions below to get you started.

In your expert opinion is your industry growing? Please describe (the sectors)!
I am [state your age] [gender] [currently studying a Cert IV in PGA at Kangan Institute]. Would I be able to find employment with you?
What advise do you have for me?

Interview 2 businesses (one from each group). You need to collect a contact person’s name and their job title. Aim for the highest up in a business. Write all the answers down. It might be a good idea to e-mail them the questionnaire, so that they read it as you ask them.

Today’s Class

Due to me being sick I would like you to work individually through Google’s SEO Starter Guide.

Google Search Engine Optimisation Starter Guide

Please work through pages 10 – 13 on your own. We will discuss anything in class that you did not understand. The XML file might be new to you.

On paper: try to create a directory or folder structure for your own website. Allow for a similar amount of folders as in the example on page 10. Do not just copy their names, but create folders that apply to a site of your own (use the examples of what we worked on in class or use something like Juanita’s School of Spanish.

Look up the links in SEO Starter Guide.
