Summary:

This case study details the Careers In Sport website which I created to enhance and facilitate the employability journeys of students at 5 different stages of their employability development, from pre-entry students thinking about studying sport at Ulster, through to students who are studying on our degree programmes, are doing a placement year or have graduated. This website has numerous sections all of which are designed to signpost students not only to our School specific opportunities but also those within Ulster University. Furthermore, the website contains a graduate destinations map, job role information and graduate profiles of our alumni. There is also a live chat feature so that there is a personal and interactive aspect of the website available to support students as they use this resource and plan their employability enhancing activities.
