Resources to support career education in teaching

The Careers and Employability team offer a variety of resources for teaching staff to help improve student skills, knowledge, confidence and connections in managing their careers.

Flinders Employability Toolkit
The 11 tasks – with optional rubrics – bring together foundational career education and navigation activities. Teaching staff are encouraged to use these as a guide and adapt them for purpose.

Aligned to each task, we are currently developing 20-30 minute teaching activities that can be run during lectures or tutorials. These will be launched later in Semester 2.

Job Hacks workshops
We run regular Job Hacks workshops throughout the year including for career planning, job search, LinkedIn, selection criteria and interview skills. These may be used to support teaching or promoted directly to students. See the schedule here.

Course-specific resources
Other resources that can be used to support teaching include College-based course specific resources* and a growing suite of career development recordings** (20-60 minutes) – on career planning, job search strategies, resumes, cover letters, selection criteria, interviews, networking and graduate programs.

Industry guest lectures
Teaching staff who would like to include a guest lecture from an industry partner are encouraged to contact Robyn Gamble Guest lectures are flexible but often 30 minutes, with a technical focus complemented by information on employment opportunities.

Job vacancies
Careers and online learning are currently exploring how we might incorporate a live feed of relevant job vacancies from Flinders CareerHub onto FLO topic sites. Contact to register your interest.
