Through the module, students will pick up practical career tools such as writing an effective resume, acquiring good interview techniques, and developing an effective elevator pitch and a network of potential career connections.
An early focus on career readiness will help students get ahead in a competitive job market, since employers are increasingly converting their summer interns into full time employees to build their talent pipelines.
Industry relevance is an important component of this module, as Lecture 3 will feature guest speakers from different industries who will share recruiters’ perspectives on hiring trends and interviewing techniques.
The module consists of four lectures and two e-seminars over 6 weeks. Students will be equipped with essential skills and knowledge to make informed decisions on academic specialisations, personal growth and preferred career interests.
