At the department of Computer Science we have career VIPs who acts as liaison officer between the department and the industry for scientific staff as well as for students.
The career VIPs at AAU are the driving forces for creating awareness about career opportunities among students, including contact to industry and AAU Career.
In general, the purpose of the career VIP is to ensure more integration and anchoring of the students' career related awareness and reflections throughout the study.
THE ROLE OF THE CAREER VIP
The role of the career VIP is to act as:
- Promoter of a culture with employability focus at the study programmes throughout the entire study, starting at the first year of studies of the bachelor's programmes
- Developer of awareness of career opportunities among students, possibly supported by AAU Career
- Facilitator, coordinator and contact person for the industry and AAU Career
Examples of actual activities and functions:
- The career VIP is expected to coordinate work with AAU Career to ensure that the employability efforts are mutually qualified
- Participation in knowledge sharing and development meetings with career VIPs from other study programmes facilitated by AAU Career
Career activities always involve career VIPs and can be carried through and held in several ways, e.g in cooperation with.:
- AAU Career, AAU Alumni or other (external) agents (e.g., unemployment funds, trade unions, job centers etc.)
- AAU Match or SEA
- Other career VIPs
The career-promoting activities are coordinated with relevant study programme coordinators.
