The purpose of Module 1 is to help you develop the skills and knowledge you will need throughout your career. You will develop an understanding of your accomplishments and interests and how they impact your skills. You will learn how the skills you possess impact the value you offer to employers.
To accomplish this, you will complete a career self-assessment; reflect on your skills, accomplishments and interests; and create a plan for further developing your employability skills. You will define your transferable skills to better understand their value.
The purpose of Module 2 is to learn job search strategies, understand the components of a resume, cover letter and reference page, and develop resume and cover letter writing skills.
To accomplish this, you will reflect on your current and future academic and career journey to create a job search goal and plan. You will develop a resume and cover letter by reflecting on your past experiences in order to translate these experiences into accomplishments.
The purpose of Module 3 is to develop an understanding of the ‘professional voice’ in verbal, non-verbal, and written workplace communication. You will gain skills necessary for communicating with different levels in an organization.
To accomplish this, you will participate in a simulation learning activity that replicates a real-life scenario in which you practice using your ‘professional voice’. Within the simulation, you will take instruction, initiate collaboration, and use conflict management strategies to deal with uncomfortable situations.
The purpose of Module 4 is to develop an understanding of how to create your “professional brand”. You will consider the benefits of developing an ePortfolio and gain an understanding of how networking can be an effective job search strategy. You will also gain the necessary skills to prepare for and complete a successful interview.
To accomplish this, you will reflect on your personal brand, aligning it to your online presence; develop networking strategies including preparing a 30-second elevator pitch; and develop personalized responses to common interview questions by applying the Situation, Task, Action, Response (STAR) method.
The purpose of Module 5 is to review key learning from Modules 1 to 4 in order to develop an understanding of what you need to know and do to be successful when starting your career. You will reflect on areas for growth and plan for engaging in continuous learning and professional development. You will make connections between the Future Ready Premium Program, your academic studies and career goals.
To accomplish this, you will identify different workplace cultures in practice; set relevant and attainable professional development goals; develop a professional development plan; and create a representation of the connection between Future Ready Premium Program learning, classroom learning, and future career goals. You will describe a plan for implementing new learning from the Future Ready Premium Program.
