Many people study at university because they want to work in a specific profession, or perhaps gain employment with better conditions. This chapter outlines some steps that you can be taking now, while you are a student, to increase your employability when applying for work after you graduate. These activities do not need to be time consuming and many will also be helpful to you as a student learning in your field of study. It’s not too early to start thinking about your post-university employment, and many of the activities suggested in this chapter can be undertaken now, regardless of how far you are through your studies. This chapter begins by discussing the importance of having a general career plan and then describes some activities that can assist in developing your career readiness and make you more attractive to future employers.
