COVID19 updates from Jameson:
Albert Einstein once said, “In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity” and although we find ourselves in uncertain times is there a way to turn this to our advantage? Sinéad D’Arcy, Head of the Jameson International Graduate Programme had a chat on that very subject with Alex Gibson & other colleagues of his from TUD for a recent podcast focused on How to Turn Adversity to Advantage for students & recent graduates. The piece is hosted by Alex Gibson & can be accessed as a podcast on The Persuaders HERE.
As a graduate employer we know that this is an anxious time for students & as a team we have been looking at ways we can support. We will be publishing a series of blogs. The first of which is focused on Taking Control in Uncertain Times & can be accessed on Linkedin HERE for now. We are working on developing a dedicated section on our website to house this & future blogs.
Also, we have been working as a team to develop support for our own graduates & launched an initiative called Staying Connected to do just that. The programme focuses on three key areas which are important at any time as a professional but in particular at this time as we all adapt to the new reality of working from home. These areas are: 1. Communications 2. Well-Bring (Mental & Physical) & 3. Self-Development. As part of this programme check out how to set your home workspace up for success with Podge HERE or breathing techniques to help ground you and centre you with Gillian HERE.
