Job Satisfaction Reflective Essay

Assessment Description: During this subject so far, you have been exposed to various business psychology theories that have an application to individuals, teams and organisations. Being able to apply these concepts in a practical manner is a key outcome of this course. The purpose of the assessment task is to write a reflective essay that includes a discussion of the motivation theories you have learnt, and how these may be applied to your own work history. Being able to do so, will assist your ability to evaluate why it is that some people excel in the workplace, while others may not. Consequently, you are required to answer the following question: Summarise the concept of job satisfaction/dissatisfaction using 2-3 relevant theories. Choose a job that you have been employed as part-time or full-time, permanent or temporary, in the profit or not for profit sector. The job you choose however, must be one in which you were either: ‘extremely satisfied’ or ‘extremely dissatisfied’ Then, by applying 3 (three) theories of motivation, you are to analyse why you felt the way you did. A reflective essay is an academic analysis of your own experience. It still follows academic conventions, for instance, it is structured with an introductory paragraph, middle, and a well-defined conclusion and it should have a logical series of paragraphs. The introductory paragraph must include the objective of the essay and the conclusion paragraph must highlight the importance of the learning that you have achieved in completing this assessment task. You need to critically reflect on thoughts, feelings and actions, then integrate these reflections with the theoretical concepts. A reflective essay should be written in both the first and third person. Your reflective essay should include: A clear introduction defining scope. A brief discussion of what job satisfaction/dissatisfaction is, including the appropriate theory. A description of the job you have selected. Outline the role, your tenure, the organisation (under a pseudonym if confidential) and the context. Three theories of motivation applied to the selected job and analysed in relation to your own experience. A clear conclusion that summarises your insights. A reference list.
