I wrote yesterday about our new book You’re Hired! Graduate Career Handbook. This book is going to be released the start of next week, but you can of course pre-order now.
In the meantime I’d like to share with you the free guide that we’ve made for HE staff. If you follow this blog you are probably more likely to be a careers person or an academic than a current student (although I welcome all readers). We wrote the actual book for students, but we thought that it would be useful to think about how academics and careers educators might make use of it as part of their delivery of careers and employability modules and programmes.
The guide covers how to use the Graduate Career Handbook in the following situations.
- To support career conversations and as part of careers advice and guidance
- To support students when they are networking with employers and undertaking placements and other kinds of extra-curricular experiences.
- To run employability workshops.
- To design employability modules and programmes.
We ‘ve included a load of workshop plans, draft module specifications with learning outcomes and an extensive reading list to support modules.
Hopefully you will find it useful.
