About the content

The future of work is unpredictable, and navigating this disruption effectively matters to everyone in every industry, inlcuding employees, entrepreneurs, and managers.

This course will show you how to take your experiences, extract what you've learnt from them and present them in a way that clearly communicates your potential and enables you to apply them in different contexts - such as being employed within organisations or running your own business.

A degree is necessary to secure a graduate role, but to be effective in any context we can do much more.

You'll hear from:

  • Employers discussing what they value when hiring new employees.
  • Entrepreneurs who discuss the attributes that enhance their entrepreneurial pathways.
  • Current students who have maximised their university experience.
  • Graduates who have transitioned successfully into the workplace or their own business.
  • Experts sharing their perspectives on employability.
