CAREER 100

Crafting Your Career


Description

What is employability? "Crafting your Career" uses project-based, collaborative, problem-solving activities so students can identify and hone their skills to prepare for life after their degree.

The key goal of the course is to enhance students’ work-readiness by helping them understand, develop and communicate skills that employers say are essential to career success. The learning outcomes for CAREER 100 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 the employability concept and display an employability mindset
  • Understand the broad cross-functional/transferrable skill set developed in the process of completing an undergraduate degree
  • Understand key skills and capabilities sought in the job market
  • Have greater confidence in using critical thinking, problem-solving, team collaboration and communication skills to develop and present innovative solutions to real world problems
  • Have greater confidence in communicating their key skills and strengths to potential employers through CVs, introductory videos and job interviews
  • Have the self-awareness, self-understanding, independence and confidence to begin crafting their future career around their values, strengths and interests as well as their skills and subject knowledge
