The overarching goal of this course is to help students develop a deeper understanding of theory and research in the area of career development and planning and to demonstrate how such knowledge is pertinent for the effective management of the students’ career prospects.

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Manage their own careers, in general, and prepare for the job search process;
- Conceptualise and implement projects by working in teams;
- Articulate awareness and insights about their strengths and growth areas and develop practical strategies to apply these insights in managing their own career development;
- Determine a career path that best suits their values, interests, personality, and skills;
- Identify factors influencing employees and their careers;
- Articulate an in-depth understanding of theory and research in the area of career development; and,
- Compare and contrast the various theories of career choice and development.
- Typical assessments may include, but is not restricted to: in-class exercises, written and oral assignments, quizzes, examinations, group project tasks, oral presentation, and other assessment deemed appropriate to show attainment of the learning outcomes set for the course.
