Developing Employability for Business

Maryvonne Lumley and James Wilkinson

  • The first textbook from a major publisher that is designed to support a module on professional and employability skills: covers the skills required in employment (along with numerous opportunities to practice these) together with guidelines on securing a job
  • Interviews with high-profile graduate employers act as examples of real-life practice
  • Student interviews highlight areas particularly important for undergraduates, and compare common experiences
  • A holistic, project-based approach, which develops skills and understanding via active, experiential, social and reflective learning; students are given experience in the techniques and skills needed for managing themselves and others, for undertaking project work, and for finding and progressing in work
  • Breadth of coverage on employability: in addition to a full range of workplace skills and job-hunting skills, the book includes material on areas that employers have identified as important, including customer-facing skills and entrepreneurship
  • An integrated approach, with a balanced mix of theory and skills; sections are revisited so that skills can be revised, refined and developed over the course of the book and in response to actual learning experiences and needs
