Researcher Career Coaching Session - 25 April

Think about the last you chose a new phone, bought a new laptop or changed your car.  Most people really want to make the best choice and often invest a lot of time and energy finding out the options, looking at the pros and cons, comparing models, features and prices.

The same is true for careers - yet many of us don't know how to make those ''best choices'' in the context of a career.  Worse still we get bogged down or stressed out when we dont come up with a clear, inspired answer.

On 25 April Dr Margaret Collins, a career coach with over twenty years experience working as a researcher, will be in UCD to meet with postdocs to discuss and explore answers to the following questions:

  • Where is your career headed?
  • Do you have a clear direction and a goal?
  • Are you confident about how you might get there?
  • Is it time for a change?

Perhaps you want to:

  • clarify a plan for taking the next step
  • review your CV
  • identify your strengths so you know what you're really good at
  • take a wider look at career choices
  • learn new skills
  • explore how to make a complete career change.


Should you be interested in setting up a meeting with Dr Collins please email by Friday 5 April.  Time slots will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. (individual sessions typically last 75 minutes)
