    Abstract

    After completing this exercise, students will be better able to recognise the skills and attributes they develop within and beyond their formal education, and to articulate these skills and attributes to prospective employers and placement hosts. In this activity students begin to recognise their skills and attributes with the support of an online self-reflection tool. Through the reflective process, students also begin to understand that oral communication skills are important for articulating their employability—and that being concise, clear, and evidence-based is key to their success.
