Enhancing Employability

Would like to share with the group an innovative approach to enhancing employability through an online ‘serious game’.  Aimed at Psychology undergraduates, the game helps students to:

  • Understand the skills and attributes employers want from graduates
  • Identify the skills gained in their degree
  • Articulate these skills in mock interviews
  • Practice communicating these skills to employers

The game features a skills section where users must think about their relevant skills, a tests section where they can attempt aptitude tests, and a job application section complete with a mock interview.

Enhancing Employability is still in its early phases and we are seeking funding to  develop it further in the future, expanding to include Law students and refining the personalised element of feedback. It is currently available to play for free and is accompanied by an online feedback form to help us improve the game.
