Resources & Tools

Because who doesn't like some internet diversion?

Some serious career bits

Needing help with your CV or some guidance on applications?

I find jobs.ac.uk not only a great place to drool over vice chancellor pay but they have a great page on careers advice

I have an irrational fondness for The Guardian jobsite. This link will take you to the science jobs – you’re welcome.

Wondering the best way to pay the rent with a science degree? Check out this site with the top 9 earning science jobs (it is in dollars but science works everywhere).

 

Some links about you

Coaching will hopefully lead to greater self awareness. Online tools can be great at helping give you food for thought. But probably not the ones that tell you which Star Wars character you are (I am a droid / ewok cross)

Ok this might seem left field but we science types need to know how we come across. How to fascinate is a free tool that is surprisingly helpful.

Finding out what you value is very important in setting career direction. It needs time for thought, reflection and then possibly chatting it through. A nice way to start can be found here

What are your strengths? There are lots of ways of doing this online – most cost money. I have found Belbin Team Roles and Insights the most helpful.

 

Some links about me

A shameless plug for my company, EJW Solutions Limited, page. But seriously you might find the blog articles helpful. There are a variety from useful time saving software tools to what I think about Chatham House rule.

 

Stuff to avoid if you are having a work crisis

These are some of my favourite sites for distraction (this section took the longest to write)

xkcd geeky wonderfulness

The Oatmeal – this is a lovely one about moles on mars.

Ars Technica  – it has a little bit of everything this nerd needs
