Career Essentials

For each Career Essentials session in the programme, we aim to provide a mix of Lecturecast recordings, pdf files of the slides and / or any additional resources / handouts that were given out.

In addition to accessing these resources, we would recommend checking our events programme for forthcoming Career Essentials talks, (use the 'Event type' filter to search for Career Essentials or register to receive event updates by email as below).

Alternatively, you can work through the relevant module of our eLearning course - Career Essentials Online in your own time.
