Get ahead in ecology

It's a fact that many graduate ecologists struggle to secure that all-important first job. Competition, lack of real experience and absence of key skills can make it challenging to get the job you really want. Continuing to develop professionally may also take a back seat because 'real life' gets in the way. We teach the skills every professional ecologist needs in order to secure that job or bring greater value to the company you work for.

To cut a long story short, this course has provided me with a roadmap with which to gain a career in ecological consultancy. When I started the course, I barely knew where to start as regards building skills that an employer would desire. Now, after taking the course, I feel I have a 'direction' to travel in, and have a focussed, targeted plan to put into action. An excellent course that I would hugely recommend to anybody looking to start a career in ecological consultancy.

New to online courses and unsure of their value?

Here's a brief summary of why online courses work better than live events.

Online courses can have a deeper impact on people’s lives than attending a one-day workshop, where a lot of the theory and the amount of content goes over people’s heads. Most one-day courses are about 4-5 hours of content. People forget up to 90% of the content if it is not recalled more than once. Most people leave the event or classroom and are immediately consumed with travelling plans and checking messages and emails and never get the course material or their notes out again. An online course can have a deeper impact than a 60-minute keynote speech. IBM found that participants learn five times more material in online learning courses using multimedia content than in traditional face to face courses.

The emotional cycle of change

When you are seeking your first job or go through career change it can cause a huge upheaval in your emotional stance. There can be many different reasons for a career change, whether or not it is your choice or if you have been made redundant from your job. Losing and changing your job is actually ranked as one of the situations that can cause high levels of stress. Either way, you will most likely go through, what professionals have termed, the Emotional Cycle of Change. We are here to help you get out of the 'valley of doom' and help provide informed optimism.
