Online Storyteller

The online storyteller is a new resource for 2017 for all students and graduates (up to two years after graduation). Using this online software you can reflect on your career journey so far and record information about your likes, dislikes, strengths, networks and so on. This information creates an online profile that can be used to develop your career ideas and focus on your next steps.

To access the online storyteller you must register using the form below. You will then be matched with a storytelling professional at your college or with the university careers team. This person will then contact you to arrange a time to meet (in person or by telephone or videolink) to get you started on the platform. We currently have nine storytelling professionals available :

  • Klaudia Grubska (Shetland College)
  • Caroline Hepburn (NAFC Marine Centre)
  • Caroline Mitchell (Inverness College)
  • Leigh Payne (Inverness College)
  • Brian Currie (Moray College)
  • Nicole Hyslop (Moray College)
  • Eilidh NicPhàidein (Sabhal Mòr Ostaig)
  • Helen Anton (University Careers and Employability Centre)
  • Rosie Alexander (University Careers and Employability Centre)
