As I’m new to the conference and indeed new to blogging I thought I’d start as I mean to go and on and put together a blog about an exciting new Vitae resource that will be launching at the Vitae researcher development conference.
The resource is a set of films, produced in collaboration with icould.com (also managed by CRAC) which profile the stories of 21 people, giving their take on how completing their doctorate and the skills they learnt from doing research have helped them in their careers so far. They talk about the added value of having a research background and how they are using the skills they learnt whilst doing their research in their roles today.
Around the exhibition area at the conference will be some ‘icould pods’, you shouldn’t be able to miss them, where you can view the films by going to: www.vitae.ac.uk/careerstoriesonfilm email@example.com
You can also visit icould.com a free, inspirational resource, offering an insight into real career stories told by real people, containing around 1,000 stories accessible to the user, on film, online. These stories are wide ranging, covering a whole spectrum of experiences, occupations and career and education pathways across all sectors of work, told by a wide variety of people from all kinds of backgrounds. Its purpose is to inspire young people to think differently about their futures, by giving them a vivid insight into the working lives of real people in real jobs.
