Going on a Journey to Find Yourself on the Way to Being Employable

In today’s fast-paced and ever-evolving job market, securing a job requires more than just a degree. Employability is the key to success, encompassing a blend of skills, attitude, knowledge, and adaptability. As the course mentor of Employability360 at Daffodil International University, I am dedicated to assisting students on their journey towards professional readiness.

Understanding Employability:
Employability extends beyond mere job-seeking; it entails equipping oneself with the tools and strategies necessary to not only obtain a job but also thrive in one’s career. Many students are unaware of the concept of employability and its significance in shaping their future success. Hence, my primary objective as a mentor is to provide them with a comprehensive understanding of the current job market landscape.

Exploring the Job Market:
In the Employability360 course, I emphasize the dynamic nature of the job market and the evolution of traditional roles, alongside the emergence of new opportunities. Students learn to adapt to these changes and identify the skills and qualities sought after in today’s workplace.

The Importance of Self-Assessment:
Self-assessment serves as the foundational step in the journey towards employability. Without a clear understanding of their strengths, weaknesses, preferences, and aspirations, students may struggle to find a suitable career path. Recognizing this, I dedicate significant time to guide students through various self-assessment tools and techniques. For instance, I incorporate interactive tasks such as SWOT analysis, feedback systems, and IKIGAI exercises to facilitate self-discovery.

Hands-On Learning Approach:
Acknowledging that students often prefer hands-on activities over lectures, I integrate interactive exercises into the curriculum. For example, I introduce the concept of self-assessment by providing students with a unique task. Armed with blank paper and color pencils, they visually represent their major skills, characteristics, experiences, and weaknesses through drawings, fostering creativity and self-expression.



Facilitating Peer Feedback:
Upon completing their drawings, students engage in peer-sharing sessions, fostering collaboration and offering constructive feedback. This process enables students to gain insights into their strengths and areas for improvement, enhancing their self-awareness and personal development.

The journey towards employability is a transformative one, characterized by self-discovery and continuous growth. Through the Employability360 course, students are equipped with the tools and mindset needed to navigate the complexities of the job market and build successful careers. As a mentor, my mission is to empower students to unleash their full potential and thrive in the professional world. By following the outlined steps and incorporating interactive and engaging activities, students can embark on a journey of self-exploration and readiness for the professional realm.
