This group’s main priority is the development of best practice employability initiatives. The Group’s current focus is on the development of a comprehensive employability pack which can be used by careers advisory professionals in Irish HEIs. The Group actively engages with employers, academics, students and other professionals working in this field to develop and encourage the best and most effective employability measures which will be incorporated into the educational experience.
The employability task group in the past year has worked very closely with employers and career professionals in order to compile a set of video resources that can be used as a training tool when advising students on employability. The videos cover everything from interview skills to reasonable accommodations for students with a disability and much more. All videos can be viewed on the AHECS Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/graduatecareersirela/videos
