Preparing you for life after Swansea
Swansea Employability Award (SEA)
The Careers and Employability Service works in partnership with academic staff to provide the SEA for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The Swansea Employability Award helps you to explore who you are and then gain experience and develop skills. If you complete the SEA it will be recorded on your degree transcript.
There are two main modules to the SEA following registration, the first module is about finding out more about yourself; what you value in life, your personality type, learning styles, what jobs might suit you, then marketing yourself by creating a CV and covering letter. The module finishes with an interview with a Careers Adviser. The second module is about getting experiences. These experiences may follow on from the first module or they may be general experiences and can be work experiences, volunteering, positions of responsibility to name a few. Following the completion of these experiences you will have a mock job interview.
For each element of the two modules you need to record your experiences and thoughts in relation to your career.
