Building online employability: A guide for academic departments

This publication has been produced to disseminate what has been learnt through running the Social Media Internship Programme (SMIP) at the University of Derby. During February/March of 2012, the University of Derby's Career Development Centre (CDC), in association with the International Centre for Guidance Studies (iCeGS), used funding from the Research for Teaching and Learning programme to pilot and evaluate an innovative career development intervention.

Following the successful pilot, further funding was secured to deliver the programme during December 2012/January 2013 with more interns, especially those drawn from programme areas which were under-performing in the DLHE survey. The project also sought to generate additional resources which could be used by academics to embed digital career literacy into the curriculum.

This guide will help academic departments to support students to think about their careers and to use the online environment wisely. Used badly, the array of social media and online technologies can seriously disadvantage a student's career development, but if used well they can support students to find out about and transition into their future career.
