Content

Coming to the end of your studies and wondering how you can present the skills and knowledge you have developed in a way that helps you stand out from the crowd? This unit will guide you on how to articulate your professional value to a range of stakeholders: from prospective employers to supervisors, peers and even potential business partners. You will learn how to craft a powerful brand narrative that showcases your competencies and capabilities and gives you a distinctive edge in the story you tell about your professional identity. You will also learn about job search and career strategies, how to make the most of networking opportunities and navigate career transitions, along with specifically tailoring applications and elevator pitches to work opportunities - all while building on the evidence you have already collected and curated as part of your studies and/or your professional development e-portfolio.
