It is vital in an increasingly competitive labour market, that students are equipped with all the qualities necessary to gain and retain fulfilling employment. One of the generic skills of concern is employability skills which relates to knowledge of the relevant profession, the ability to interact with the profession and seek a career. Students should position themselves in relation to future work and what they perceive to be appropriate and meaningful courses of future action. This can be facilitated through career development learning activities as part of Work Integrated Learning.

Career development learning aims to assist students to develop knowledge and understanding of themselves e.g. strengths, abilities, skills; develop knowledge and understanding of the range of career opportunities available; learn how to make considered choices and plan options and effectively manage the implementation of the considered choices in adult life and work life. This can be done through reflection.

This paper proposes the use of an assessment rubric in assessing reflection in a career development component of a business course.
