For the duration of the project, students are expected to reflect on how they have developed as an individual and as part of a team as a means of developing a professional identity that highlights their distinctive self and to consider their own personal employment strategies while building professional networks. It provides the student, faculty, and the employer with a measuring device for assessing the student's approach to full-time employment. Students are responsible for securing their own work experience placement, with the assistance of the instructor, prior to the first week of the course.
