This subject provides students with targeted career and employability development, anchored in the professional and vocational requirements of their industry. Students will explore their individual career goals and personal motivations, whilst building a deep understanding of current industry requirements and employment trends. The unit takes students through three developmental stages. The first stage is the enhancement of their career clarity, in particular determination of a career path and the development of a personal brand and narrative aligned to that path. Working from contemporary industry insights, participants work with actual job and employment data to enhance their professional knowledge. The second stage focuses on the specific capabilities required in their chosen career path, including both professional and technical skills. Armed with this knowledge students prepare a professional development plan to enable comprehensive career preparation and the development of a differentiated employment narrative. The final stage focusses on strategies to build professional confidence to not only successfully navigate the recruitment process but, importantly, to effectively manage a lifelong career. Strong industry engagement is a characteristic of the Professional Employability program, providing vital networking and knowledge building opportunities with authentic perspectives on career management.
