Career Explorer Program

Get your university experience off to a great start with three dedicated career coaching sessions.

UNSW Employability Career Discovery Coaching Program

Please note

The Career Explorer Program was previously known as the Career Discovery Coaching Program.

If you have completed the Career Discovery Coaching Program in the past, there is no need to do it again under the new name as it is essentially the same program. 

Career Explorer Program

Design your experience at UNSW in just three coaching sessions via our Career Explorer Program, all while discovering what drives you, what values are important to you and what programs and jobs excite you.

In this coaching program we will help you to navigate your UNSW employability journey with expert guidance to:

  • understand your motivations and professional interests
  • plan how to engage in employability programs during your degree
  • explore career pathways that will energise you
  • Design Your Experience at UNSW.

If you are struggling to find an available appointment, please contact employability@unsw.edu.au

  • Session One

     

    Let’s start by getting to know you and what brings you to the program. We will discuss the DOTS model of career development and employability skills. You will gain your access to the exclusive Which Career For Me (WCFM) questionnaire.

     

    Session Two

     

    Your career coach will work with you to understand your WCFM questionnaire results and together you will discuss your values, motivations, future skills and a range of career options to explore.

     

    Session Three

     

    It’s now time to 'Design your Experience' at UNSW. Together you and your career coach will begin developing a plan for engaging in employability programs available to you throughout your degree. This gives you a unique opportunity to maximise your employability journey during your time at UNSW and prepare you to discover purposeful career options.

     

  • Any student in the 'discovery' stage of their career! These are usually students in first or second year, however if you are at a different stage of study and feel that you could benefit from the program, you are also welcome to book in the initial group session to discuss with a career coach.

    *Please note this program is not suitable for students enrolled in MBA programs. Please contact Career Accelerator @ AGSM for career development support/career coaching support.
