Career opportunities

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS

Staff from the Centre for Personal and Career Development will be
involved with the delivery of this aspect of the curriculum in all
three levels. You will be encouraged to follow the SOAR model at a
number of points during the curriculum. This approach requires that
you become aware of:

  • Your own interests, motivations and strengths
  • The kinds of opportunities for employment and self development
    that are available
  • Your personal objectives
  • How to articulate, evidence and present your achievements and
    skills

During the Level One Fundamentals of Studying Computing unit, you
will be encouraged to explore the potential career opportunities
available within your field of study and to establish the skills
requirements typically expected by employers.

During Level Two, you will be expected to identify specific roles and
vacancies of interest and to complete a mock application, which may
include a CV, a covering letter and a mock interview. This activity
will require you to establish the fit between your skills and
experience and those required to meet the needs of the employer. From
this, you will be encouraged to develop an action plan to help you
achieve your future objectives. This could, for example, include
identifying the need to gain relevant work experience or assisting
with the definition of the type of project topic that will be most
useful in achieving your career objectives.

There will be other opportunities to practice the skill of
interpreting what an employer is looking for and then presenting
evidence to support your own application.
