Finding a Career That You Love

Graduate looking to take hold of your career? This workshop will help you to consider work options for now and in the future. It will provide an opportunity to take a step back, understand your career motivations and plan your journey within and beyond the creative industries.

During the session you’ll be guided through a series of exercises designed to help you to identify your strengths and career interests. The workshop will cover 3 main areas: understanding where you are now; identifying where you want to be in the future; and how to plan to take relevant steps in that direction.

By the end of the session you will:

  • Be able to identify your personal values and motivations surrounding work/life.
  • Have a clearer idea of the wide range of possible career options available to you.
  • Have set realistic goals for a plan of action.

This event is for UAL graduates only.
