The ultimate intention of studying at university is to either get a job or start a company and live a valuable (and valued) life after graduation. But if there is little focus on how to do that while still at university, don’t you think we have a problem?
Most Universities have student support services, careers department and centres for entrepreneurship but these units are sometimes understaffed, lacking capacity and skills to support students career development and progression. Others mandate that students must take specific career courses but these programmes are theoretical and lacking strategic engagement and alignment with industry.
Even though most students rely on their career departments and student support services unit to increase student employability, what if these departments lack full fundamental’s knowledge and models to support the career development for students. This course therefore reveals incredibly practical steps, exercises and knowledge on how a student or professional can start developing relevant career skills to fit into their industry especially in the new era.
