31016 Career Management for IT Professionals

6cp; on campus

Undergraduate

Description

This subject aims to prepare IT students for their internship and work-integrated learning (WIL) by being able to effectively market themselves to appropriate employers and apply professional skills and behaviours sought in the workplace, such as ethical decision making. The subject initially focuses on the skills (both technical and transferable) required to be competitive job seekers, an understanding of how to develop effective targeted job applications and how to perform well in an interview. It then prepares students for professional practice by teaching students how to manage ethical dilemmas, apply creativity in the workplace and learn experientially using a formal framework. The subject also introduces a skills-based e-portfolio, which students will employ during their internships and for ongoing career management.
