March Newsletter for Masters students

The clocks spring ahead, the days are longer and (a little) warmer, the nature is waking up from its long winter’s slumber – and the job market is coming alive; make sure you don’t miss out on some great opportunities this Spring, these are detailed below.

If you’re not sure what you want to do, Spring is a good time to practice a little daydreaming – occupational daydreaming:

Morgan, J.I., & Skovholt, T.M. (1977). Using inner experience. Fantasy and daydreams in career counseling.  Journal of Counseling Psychology, 5, 391-397

Do your daydreams contain thoughts, images, or feelings about work? Morgan and Skoholt (and subsequent work) indicates that daydreams are an important part of planning and managing our careers.  Make a record of how work and career appear in your daydreams – can you tease out any clues or patterns? Alternatively, try and visualise in as much detail as possible your ideal day at work: What are you doing? What’s the environment like? The people you work with? Where are you living?
