This subject enables students to either:

1. Engage with the past, present and future challenges of transitioning from student to professional, through a professional, immersive career development experience (PIExCD) with 3 phases: 1) Planning for your career, 2) Job search and interviewing, and 3) Innovation in practice.


2. Engage with the practice context of their future careers through an internship in a setting where they may experience creativity and/or innovation practices on the ground, such as at a creative consultancy; a larger organisation with an innovation department; an organisation exploring a sector-wide or systems approach to innovation and change; an existing early venture/startup; or a research-focused centre or institute. Students undertaking an internship are expected to gain experience in creative and innovation practices, and observe how innovation is embedded in their host organisations. Students are encouraged to analyse the capabilities needed in an innovation-oriented workplace and consider how they can apply this knowledge to developing their future careers.
