Graduate career readiness: Reflection and Resilience

Reflecting on your career journey so far can help you think about how to make better career decisions in the future!

Reflection and Resilience

It's important to take time to reflect on where you've come from and what you've achieved in your career to date, so the you can better prepare for future career-related decisions you may need to make - the resources below can help you to take stock of your skills, interests and experiences to date, reflect on what you've learned and how you might apply this knowledge in the future!

  • Fill in a reflection log to help you reflect on how your career is progressing and if there are any new opportunities you might want to consider, or ways to undertake further development within your current activity.
  • The Mind Tools website has a number of useful models you can use to help you reflect in work and outside of work, such as Gibbs' Reflective Cycle.
  • Complete the Skills Health Check on the National Careers Service website to help you reflect on your skills, interests and motivations and how these connect with the type of work you might be interested in doing now or in the future.
  • Finding it difficult to reflect? A confidential Careers guidance appointment with our Careers Consultants can help you to organise your thoughts and bounce career ideas around!
