Why take this program?

When you're looking for your first job, it can seem like it's a never ending process! Developing resilience helps you to get back on your feet after a disappointment, keep going even when you don't feel like it, and ultimately achieve what you set out to do. These qualities are also important in a job - having the discipline and drive to get a job done is perhaps one of the most highly valued characteristics in an employee. Of course the best way of developing resilience is by challenging yourself to achieve a goal, and that also means you'll be able to prove your resilience to employers by talking about your experiences on your CV or in interviews. But there are also techniques and ideas that can help you to become more resilient, which this program explores. Develop your resilience and prove to employers that you're a driven, purposeful individual with the ideas and activities in this program. This program explores: * Understanding resilience and its role in the workplace * Using negative feedback to your advantage * Relaxation and stress minimisation techniques * Effective decision making * How to maintain focus
