If you have been using the Careers Service for a while you may remember our old website catalogue. It was clunky and difficult to search.
So, over the past few months we have been transitioning this over to the MyFuture resources tab. This should make it easier for you to find relevant resources and help us to keep resources up to date.
How to find resources
You can find resources by logging onto MyFuture and clicking the Resources tab. There are several ways you can navigate the resources.
- Browse the list. Use the drop down to order by relevance, date added or alphabetically
- Search using keywords or topics in the search bar
- Filter to specific topics using the topic list on the right hand side.
What is on there
The resources tab has all the resources we produce in the Careers Service. For example, the Application, CV and cover letter guide. We also list the practice interview and psychometric testing software we subscribe to.
As well as Careers Service resources, we list resources from third parties that we think are useful.
We tag every resource with a variety of topics to make it easier for you to find what you need. For example, if you need help with your career options try choose a career. If you want to practice tests try aptitude tests. Under this tag we list both the tests we subscribe to but also other free tests we have found.
We also tag by type of resources so give the below a try:
- Careers Service resource – to list all the resources we produce ourselves in the Careers Service
- Video – to see all the video resources we have available
- Webinar – we record our webinars and have them available for you to view on the site.
As with opportunities, events and news - you can bookmark resources. This will save the resource to your bookmarks under your dashboard.
Give us feedback
On every resource, you will find the option to give us feedback. So if you find a broken link, or the resource was not what you expected – let us know! And if you haven’t been able to find what you need, you can always use the ask a question page to get further help and support.
We hope you find the new careers catalogue useful. Let us know if you think we are missing something or if you have suggestions for how we could improve our resources.
