Academic Reflections on Graduate Employability Symposium, 28 November at Greenwich campus Articles

The transition from student to graduate level work can be challenging. Come along and reflect on what a published academic's research in this area has identified and how it relates to you.

This presentation explores new ways of thinking about the challenge of graduates' post-university employment. It departs from traditional approaches to graduate employability which have tended to view the acquisition of skills and competency development as core markers of 'graduateness'. It draws upon extensive research with graduates and employers and shows that employability is increasingly about the development and deployment of key resources; namely forms of organisational/sectoral-related cultural, social, identity and psychological capital.

After the presentation there will be a panel discussion along with refreshments in the Heritage Gallery.
