Careers service: Brochure Linking Academic and Career Values

Employability & Enterprise

Project description

I designed, produced and issued brochures for English Literature students in such a way that careers were actively projected out of academic programmes, with more detailed reference to specific units, or combinations of units, and their possibilities.

The main aim was to give more sense of the way in which academic values relate to, and can be transformed into, career values.

At the moment we tend to work backwards rather than forwards – from relatively vague career outcomes to a general sense of the kind of courses which produce these outcomes.

This is one a series of projects. You can read about them all on the main project page.

Benefits to English students

Helped students’ academic planning, while not vocational in a narrower sense, become more career orientated.
