⁉️   Q&As to help your career

If you're like most students graduating from an undergraduate or postgraduate degree you'll come armed with a host of skills and a bucket load of knowledge. The challenge facing you is HOW will you put this to good use in work. The skills of processing information for an essay, exam or dissertation project hone certain skills in scoping, evaluating and processing information - you get good at developing a certain style of scientific method. This is a great starting point. However, working in applied science organisations or applying your work to paying clients requires a whole set of unique skills often unspoken of in your academic training. 

The skills that will enable you to be successful in applied science industries and consultancy are DIFFERENT! Why are they different? Because they're working skills - not studying skills, not passing exams skills, not getting good grades skills. Makes sense right?

So what do you need to develop? Through this course you'll learn about, develop and put into practice skills around;

  • How to work effectively in science teams
  • How to collaborate and work with your manager and colleagues
  • How to work out what work is going to be the most important
  • Which scientific skills do I need at different times?
  • How to operate effectively in different science environments
  • How to communicate what you know with maximum effect
  • How to apply critical thinking to enhance your judgement
  • How to work strategically to ensure long term success (including how to influence your manager
  • How to thrive in work by investing in habits that create energy, enhance your engagement and productivity

These are rare skills because they're not taught - until now!
