What do business students think about study, career and employability?

This ABDC project will help us to understand business students’ career thinking and will inform the development of targeted resources.

The engagement strategy:
1. Students create an online personalised profile containing 50 embedded resources.
2. Educators receive a detailed report of their cohort’s confidence.
3. Educators / coordinators choose whether to join the analysis team.

Answers to frequently asked questions:
• The profile tool’s employABILITY measure is grounded in social cognitive theory.
• The profile tool is appropriate for all year levels, including graduate students.
• Ethical approvals are in place, as are the strategies to engage students.
• Students’ confidence and career thinking can be tracked longitudinally.
• Students choose whether or not to include their responses in the dataset.

For more information and to register your cohort for semester 2,
