Many North Koreans are changing their mind frames about how their government is being delegated, so I am creating a message that is both informational and inspirational. It is hard to understand what would inspire the people of this country because they seem to constantly live in fear of their government. If they go against the laws of the land then not only are the punished, but their whole family is as well. The most efficient and effective use of the flyer would be to motive people to be inspired even if their living conditions are less than desirable. My target audience would be the poverty stricken people of North Korea and those that are willing to spark a change within their country. I selected this particular audience, but all people of North Korea can universally interpret the flyer.

With this message that is being attached to the balloons and sent to North Korea I want to motivate the citizens of the country to rally together and have hope. The activists from South Korea that release the balloons are already doing a great deed I just want to provide an encouraging note to the people that I would be able to reach with this flyer. My message would be translated into Korean when actually created. I do not want to offend the people of North Korea that will be receiving the message along with the dollar bill; therefore I am going to keep my message neutral from any judgmental sayings against their society and government There is no access to the media for the North Koreans.

If they watch any type of foreign television or obtain any type of media it is illegal. Their government is the only source of media that it is lawful to have access and that is through North Korean State TV along other pieces of government propaganda. Even though it is illegal the Frontline report states that over half of the population engages in watching the illegal media risking their freedom and maybe even their lives; and millions engage in listening to illegal foreign radio because they are so curious to what life is like outside of their country. Five years ago they first were able to have a cell phone in North Korea, but the only stipulation is that they can only use it to call within the country. Many modify there cell phones to make calls outside of North Korea which is a serious violation of the law.

Career Development Skills Week 4 Reflection: RISE Peer Review

Filed under: Uncategorized — kalakim07 @ 3:40 am

Using the RISE model to perform a peer review helps to provide valuable feedback to fellow classmates.  This not only will assist my peer with valuable insight from another viewpoint, but it will also help me to realize what I could have done differently in my own assignment.

What struck me about your interview was your introduction. I place my introduction first in my video, but after viewing your mock interview it made me want to visit my own. It was a great idea to first introduce yourself as the interviewer I believe that it would have elevated your video even more to also include an introduction as the interviewee. Overall, I believe that you provided a great introduction. As the interviewer, you stayed professional and had proper attire for the role. When you played the part of the interviewee you exemplified the statements you used when you were telling about yourself in the first question, for example you truly showed that you are energetic and outspoken.

I noticed that sometimes when you answered the questions you seemed to ramble at times. You provided some really great answers to the questions that you created. It would have made the mock interview even better if you would have made some of your answers more concise. Though the answers you provided did answer the questions asked I believe a little more practice in the delivery of your answers would have helped you some.

Have you considered using better lighting in your video? Even though the light you used provided sufficient enough lighting I believe that it would be easier to make better eye contact with you if you added some more light. Providing an overhead light for the video would have been a great asset to the light that you have already utilized. I could see you well when you played the role of the interviewer, but once the scene changed to the interviewee it was hard to maintain that contact.

Perhaps you can add more insight by taking away some of the distractions in the video. Sometimes you stumble over your words or push your glasses up. These problems can be easily remedied by just practicing some more and then recording. Like I stated previously you provided some great answers to the questions that were asked. What I enjoyed most out of your video was the fact that it truly felt real. It actually felt like you were presenting yourself in an interview. Even though there were some distractions I believe that it added to the character of your mock interview. Interviews can be nerve-racking and leave us stumbling sometimes, even if you are interviewing yourself. Great mock interview video and I hope my comments help you.
