Don't blame others for your setbacks

Using the pandemic as an excuse for not performing your job in the best way is not going to put you in the best light.

Language that shows you are stagnant, such as "we did not have enough resources", will taint your evaluation. Instead, use words that show you are moving forward, such as "I was able to be agile during our challenges and changes."

Vague statements include being a good co-worker, well-organised or a good communicator.

It's difficult to remember in December what you worked on in February.

It is best not to rush through writing up a summary of your year. Your employer will ideally let you know what the performance reviews are used for and the effect they could have on your career.

Leaving out areas for improvement could be a missed opportunity to make the evaluation a pitch to your boss about what skills you would like to learn or ideas you want to explore.
