Developing career resilience

6 Summary

This week you have learned about a model for personal resilience. You have reflected on the resources available to you to help you with your career in three areas: the working environment, support from family and friends and your approach to learning.

You now have a framework as a prompt through the second half of this course and you are able to:

  • understand a model for adult resilience
  • weigh up your personal situation
  • reflect on your personal career resilience resources.

Next week you will explore how strengthening self-esteem supports career resilience. You will look more closely at how the internal ‘I am’ element connects to the external elements.
