Featured resource: Career action plan

This week’s featured resource is ‘Career action plan’. Most people have more than one career, and for this reason, personal values are important drivers of career decision making. This resource includes individual and group reflections on values, ‘ideal’ careers and planning ahead. If you’re a member of the Developing Employability community, you can access ‘Career action plan’ here. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can do so for free here to access all of our resources and join the conversation.   

Developing EmployABILITY selected for the Curtin Accelerate program

Developing EmployABILITY has been selected for this year’s Curtin Accelerate program. Over a ten-week period, our team will work with Accelerate mentors to improve and grow the Student Starter Kit. The Curtin Accelerate program provides industry contacts, one-to-one and group mentoring sessions, and help to bring ideas closer to commercialisation. Our aim is that by commercialising employABILITY for the school and executive market, we can ensure free access for all higher education students for many years to come. Keep an eye on Twitter to stay up-to-date with Accelerate events over the coming months.
