Career Advice Talk for Graduates (& Career Changers)

A few weeks ago, I was asked to record a careers talk for one of my old schools. Whilst it might have been recorded for school leavers, I think the advice I gave is incredibly relevant for graduates and career changers too, as there’s a similar sense of ‘getting started in something new’ and ‘what’s next’ that spans both situations.

So, I thought I’d share the video more widely.

In it, I cover:

- What my role as a Career Coach involves

- The main components of my job, and it’s pros and cons

- An overview of my career so far, and what I’ve learnt along the way

- Where to start and what to consider when leaving education or changing career

- What to do to prep for a new employer or your first job

- What skills employers are looking for

- What areas of personal development to work on before starting out

- What mindset to adopt to help you along the way

- CV & interview advice

- My thoughts on the impact of Covid-19 on the coaching industry, and career options in the future
