The UC Employability Portfolio provides students with formal recognition of activities that increase their employability and their engagement with the community.

This course is offered in partnership with UC Careers.

The purpose of BSNS299 UC Employability Portfolio is to help you prepare for your life outside of UC. Too many students complete their degrees not having thought about how they can use to showcase your skills and talents. The UC Employability Portfolio helps you put together a set of resources to make the transition from study to employment easier.

The Portfolio is comprised of five assessment activities that allow you to reflect on the skills and attributes that you have developed, either during your studies or extra-curricular activities, and how these may be of value for future employment. BSNS299 provides you with a framework to bring all of these together in a way that is meaningful for both you and your future employer.

All the resources required to complete the UC Employability Portfolio will be available only on LEARN and you can complete all activities online. A face-to-face introductory session will be offered to get you off to a good start and it is important that you attend if you are able to. The UC Careers Team will also schedule specific sessions to assist with various activities such as CV development etc.
