Career & Personal Resources
Career and Personal Resources just for you
Start at the very beginning (mapping your skills and goals)
Here at Further&More, we've found that many of our candidates know they want to make a change, to find a way to make their career and their personal life work. They're just not sure where to start.
We always recommend our skills and goals exercies. Because if you don't know where you want to go, and you don't know what you need to get there, well, you're back to front from the begiining.
Below you'll find out skills and goals mapping worksheets. They should be done in order (skills first) and they take effort and honesty. But the outcomes are terrific, every time.
The best of the rest
We've pulled together the best of the internet for you to draw on:
Courses and a membership club for working mothers who "want to ditch the overwhelm, get clear on their goals and build a valuable toolkit of transferrable personal and practical skills".
Their mission is to inspire and empower people to transition into a career that matters to them, bridging the gap between formal education and 21st century professionals & entrepreneurs.
Use of 'girl' aside, this is a set of lifestyle and career tips and artciles which are worth dipping into during lunch. Because you absolutely should be taking a lunch break - the implications for your wellbeing are huge!
Hungermama is all about meal planning and meal sharing. It makes the week a little bit easier and a lot more delcious.
MMD brings together dozens of stories of motherhood, aiming to represent "every experience equally, democratically, and inclusively, using the pictures mothers choose to take, and the words they choose to use". At once ordinary and extraordinary, the stories are moving and inclusive and brilliant.
It's very likely that this is your 'go to' commuting podcast, but just in case it's not on your radar... The Guilty Feminist is Deborah Frances-White and special guests discussing topics “all 21st century feminists agree on” while confessing their insecurities, hypocrisies and fears that underlie their lofty principles. It's funny and uplifting and inspiring and brilliant. Enjoy!
