!ohn ulqltol uepeoJeot
!ohn ls a 22 years old lrlsh sLudenL. CurrenLly underLaklng a hlghly exlgenL 8uslness AdmlnlsLraLlon MasLer, hls only work experlence was Lhrough
lnLernshlps ln sLarL-up companles. asL year he had an lnLernaLlonal experlence ln lrance, where he meL sLudenLs from all over Lhe world and wlLh
whom malnLalns conLacL malnly by lacebook and WhaLsapp.
!ohn ls very grade-consclous, always worklng hard ln order pay hls LulLlons Lhrough a unlverslLy scholarshlp. 8esldes, he ls really passlonaLe by hls
fooLball Leam, where you can flnd hlm pracLlclng ln every evenlng. neverLheless, belng a Lyplcal lrlsh sLudenL, !ohn usually goes ouL wlLh hls frlends Lo
pubs waLchlng rugby maLches and appreclaLlng a good Culnness.
8esearchlng on Lhe lnLerneL (Coogllng-lL") and asklng hls frlends and relaLlves ls how !ohn usually overcomes any obsLacles and solves hls problems.
When he ls requlred Lo do a Leam pro[ecL buL he doesn'L have a Leam yeL: he goes Lo Moodle unlverslLy laLform, geLs Lhe webmall addresses
and sends a general e-mall.
Also, he may ask hls Leachers wheLher a group ls lacklng a member. AfLer arranglng a group, he looks for Lhe members name on Moodle,
searches Lhem on lacebook and creaLes a lacebook Croup Lo communlcaLe and also a uropbox folder Lo share work ln progress. 1hen, when
he has an asslgnmenL, he sLarLs by researchlng onllne and, lf needed, he dlscusses Lhe Lheme wlLh frlends and relaLlves, who can glve hlm some
normally, !ohn communlcaLes wlLh hls frlends (lrlsh and forelgn) and famlly Lhrough WhaLsapp, Sms, lacebook lnbox/group and e-mall.
Pavlng no wl-fl or no baLLery ls one of !ohn's worsL palns - Lhls would be shuLLlng down hls whole connecLlon Lo Lhe world. Pavlng many meeLlngs on
hold and, hence, belng lncapable of plannlng or programmlng hls week ls a regular compllcaLlon. 8esldes, he resenLs every Llme no group member ls
respondlng on lacebook group or ls noL glvlng hlm feedback. llnally, Lhe consLanL noLlflcaLlons and spammlng (games lnvlLaLlon) are a conLlnuous
dlsLracLlon whlch, comblned wlLh Lhe hlgh amounL of commenLarles on Lhe group, makes hlm lncapable of keeplng Lrack of Lhe work.
AfLer overcomlng obsLacles, he feels relleved (flnally over") and self-fulfllled wlLh a sense of accompllshmenL.
Plgh efflclency (spend Lhe leasL Llme Lo geL Lhe besL grade), feellng he dld hls besL and havlng a group he can rely on and become frlends wlLh, ls whaL
really makes !ohn happy.
ersona| ob[ect|ves. Pe wanLs Lo Lravel,
have lnLernaLlonal experlences, consLrucL a
famlly and coach klds how Lo play fooLball
on Lhe weekend. MosL lmporLanLly, be able
Lo malnLaln a balance beLween famlly and
rofess|ona| ob[ect|ves. !ohn wanLs Lo
pursue an lnLernaLlonal career. llrsLly, he
would llke Lo become Lhe CLC of a
MulLlnaLlonal LnLerprlse. 1hls experlence
and neLworklng would be cruclal Lo bulld
hls own buslness llnked wlLh ecologlcal
susLalnablllLy and Lo become a 8uslness
