8 Summary

You’ve now completed the first week of the course – congratulations! You have reflected on your past experiences and started the groundwork for your transition back to work.

This week you have:

  • reflected on your own career journey using the lifeline activity
  • identified what your key experiences and attributes are
  • become aware of some of the main strategies that others in your position have used in their successful returns to STEM
  • increased your motivation to make a change in your life.

Next week you will be looking at how you present yourself and tell the story of who you are to potential employers or collaborators. You’ll be doing this using online networking tools as well as via a conventional CV.
