Self-Guided Resources

Career Anchors

Career anchors can help you understand preferences in areas of your work and can help you to identify roles that would suit you.

CAR Stories

CAR stories are an important part of your application and interview preparation, providing a useful structure to answer questions effortlessly and convincingly.

Getting the right CV

Use this self-guided learning resource to help you create the perfect CV.

Take ownership! Our approach to personal and professional development

How can you really take ownership of your personal and professional development? How can you build your employability? Learn to understand your development, and what works for you so you can take control and personalise development so it works best for you.

Your employability: the right job for you!

In this resource (click the image) we bring together a dispositional and situational analysis tool with the power of a dynamic online employability platform to empower you in finding the right job for you. We show you how to move away from the generic and toward the specific for the job role you want.

Professional development opportunities at Leeds

As part of BOOST we held a session with brief presentations from colleagues in professional services to explain what development they have on offer to support you and your research. Here you can listen to edited recordings of each of the presentations. See how much is on offer to you!
