Here's some things that we thought might be useful to talk about:

  • Time Management strategies/ how to adjust or start new routines 
  • How to get ‘unstuck’ in your creative projects
  • How to amend your projects & work with new limitations and challenges 
  • How to identify and sell your skills & capabilities to employers
  • Job hunting & Well-being strategies and resources 
  • Applications
  • Your CV
  • Portfolio review

Support slots are 30 mins each and you can have more than 1 if needed. 

This is an ongoing offer.
