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. Senior students and alumni will be invited to share their job search insights and experiences, and recordings of recruiters sharing their perspectives on hiring trends and interviewing techniques will be made available as well.
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.
