      Innovation Lead example of an Innovation Career Path

      On paper, my career journey looks quite erratic… But the theme running through all of my choices has been experimentation. I like to try new things that haven’t been done before. Whether that was literally experimenting in a laboratory. Or trialling different data sets to see which has the most impact.

      Innovation Career Opportunities

      Having more women, more people of colour, more people from different backgrounds, isn’t charity. Companies aren’t pushing diversity & inclusion initiatives just because it’s the right thing to do. They’re doing it because it makes good financial sense. I’m excited that this is a big focus for organisations everywhere. It will lead to lots more opportunities for a broader range of people. Plus, better products and services that reflect the consumers they serve.

      Qualifications for Innovation Careers

      Having on-the-job experience is incredibly valuable. I’m a huge proponent of schemes like apprenticeships. They give you the opportunity to work and study. There are definitely opportunities for women entrepreneurs in the field where I work; in fact, there are opportunities for women entrepreneurs in every field.

      Challenges

      I’m excited that the value that diversity (of all kinds) is being recognised as having a major impact on the bottom line for businesses. Having more women, more people of colour, more people from different backgrounds, isn’t charity; companies aren’t pushing diversity & inclusion initiatives just because it’s the right thing to do (although it certainly is), they’re doing it because it makes good financial sense. I’m excited that this is a big focus for organisations everywhere and think it will lead to lots more opportunities for a broader range of people, as well as better products and services that reflect the consumers they serve.

      English writing is a skill you will use throughout your education. In Primary school, Secondary school, College and University. While in education, your English writing skills will usually be used in writing essays.

      Competency-Based Interview Skills

      The basic principle behind Competency-Based Interviewing (CBI) is that:

      PAST BEHAVIOUR IS A STRONG INDICATOR OF FUTURE BEHAVIOUR

      CBI is a key part of the selection process because it enables you to assess the extent to which a candidate is able to use the core competencies we know to be associated with superior performance in a role.

      What’s your STEM career resilience?

      Your STEM career resilience is a major determinant of your STEM career success.

      Your career can be described as a series of jobs that are related to each other and which grow in complexity. Consequently, making educational and career choices are not once-off processes because both jobs and people evolve. For this reason, making these choices should not be seen as an all-or-nothing decision, but rather part of an evolving process. Therefore measuring your career success to a certain job or role would be pointless.
