Abstract

Over the last decade, our ways of life have been dramatically altered by the effects of globalisation and increased geographical mobility. The concept of a job for life is now irrelevant. It is vital in an increasingly competitive labour market that university students graduate with all the qualities necessary to gain and retain fulfilling employment.

Developing employability skills for graduates is an issue not only in relation to the first job students may obtain after graduation but is also important at future points of career progression. Students should position themselves in relation to future work and what they perceive to be appropriate and meaningful courses of future action to stay employable. To achieve this, program curricula must develop learning, teaching and assessment practices to encourage employability development. This process can be facilitated through career development education.

This paper proposes incorporating Career Development Learning in an early stage of a business faculty's Work Integrated Learning Framework to prepare students on their career management journey and effectively develop essential career development and employability skills and attributes. It supports the development of university business graduates who can respond to changing economic circumstances making them more employable and adaptable at the workplace.
