Abstract

This is one in a series of case studies to enhance graduate employability.
The theme of this case study is:

• Emerging careers (preparing students for careers that do not yet exist)

This case study on the role and context of emerging careers is based on interviews and focus groups with nine people across the stakeholder groups of employed graduates, students, educators and employers from four universities, and three businesses. This particular case study attempts to capture and share the insights of leading higher education thinkers/change agents. It also incorporates data from the surveys and in-depth interviews/focus groups described above.

Case study aims and objectives
• Students – To increase awareness of the importance of engaging in employability initiatives and build-in formalised support for these initiatives.
• Higher Education – To develop well-rounded graduates with employability attributes.
• Employers – To provide continued learning opportunities for graduate employees within entrepreneurial start-ups.
