Mini Career Course: 5 questions every graduating student should ask themselves

In this mini career course we aim to answer the five questions every graduating student should ask themselves as they leave university and look to the future. The course should take around 15 minutes to complete and can count towards the Aberdeen Employability Boost Award.

Aberdeen Employability Boost Award

This programme consists of live events, mini career courses, employer-led sessions and self-assessment exercises that will boost your employability. 

The next programme of live events will run from October 2021. In the meantime, you can still earn the Award(s) by completing other activities (including mini career courses, self-assessment exercises and ShortlistMe interviews). To participate in the programme, login to CareerConnect and navigate to Pathways (from the CareerConnect dashboard click on the blue circle labelled "Pathways"). Watch this short video for help with accessing Pathways.
