1.0 Introduction
The report is about showing my competency in order to get the job in the Enterprise rent a car. The competency is shown in the report with help of two of the most applicable theory in employability subject KSA framework and theory of Action and Performance. The theory of Action and Performance is used in gaining overall understanding and required capabilities of the company and KSA framework is used to show the suitability for the applied job role.

2.0 Competency model of Action and job performance

2.1 Literature review of Competency model of Action and job performance
Vathanophas and Thai-ngam (2007)The term competency was probably first introduced to psychology literature in 1973 when David McClelland argued in his article ‘Testing for competence rather than for intelligence’ that traditional tests of academic aptitude and knowledge content in fact predicted neither job performance nor success in life. Thus, the quest for theory and tools that could reliably predict effectiveness in the workplace began (McClelland, 1973). In1982 it was Boyatzis who first drew together comprehensive data that had been collected in the USA using the McBer & Company ‘Job Competence Assessment’ method. Since then, competency has become a significant factor in HR development practices (Simpson, 2002). The theory used in the report is basic contingency theory as demonstrated in Figure.1. As per this model excellent performance can only be derived when the person competence is persistent with the requirement of job demand and company environment. According him employee’s competence is illustrated on the basis of principles, perspective, qualifications and skill. The job demand in model illustrates key duties and responsibility required to be done. The organisation environment illustrates particular organisation culture and structure as well as economic, political, communal and religious atmosphere around the company. The framework mentioned in following report is semi-detailed and covers core factors of each aspect. This model is aligned with norms of Enterprise Rent Car Company and standardised market norms of ideal manger.
