Crafting Your Career


What is employability? "Crafting your Career" uses project-based, collaborative, problem-solving exercises to assist students to identify and hone personal attributes and ready themselves for life after the degree. The world of work is changing rapidly. The course aims to enhance students’ work-readiness by teaching them to understand, develop and communicate skills that employers say are essential to career success.

Course structure and learning outcomes are closely related to the themes and capabilities expressed in the University and BA Graduate Profiles. By the time students complete this course we expect they will:

  • Understand what employability is and have an employability mindset
  • Understand the broad cross-functional/transferrable skill set developed in the process of completing an undergraduate degree
