This interactive workshop recognises the importance of students developing a personal brand for enhancing employability. It will connect professional identity, a key dimension of student employability, with professional persona and personal brand. Presenters will review ways that students can create, market and position their brand, with a particular focus on ePortfolios and LinkedIn profiles.
Participants will be given the opportunity to collaborate in small groups to discuss how they can use the shared tools and resources to assist students in their own area to develop a personal brand that will lead to job and career opportunities.
This interactive workshop will explore:
- Professional identity development and the importance of personal brand
- Using ePortfolios to develop a personal brand and articulate strengths and capabilities
- Using LinkedIn to create your personal brand
This workshop is relevant to unit, course and discipline leaders, WIL practitioners, academic and curriculum developers, and careers and employability staff.
There will be an afternoon tea and time to network with others.
