Future Edge

A hands on program to help students develop practical skills valued by employers.

What is Future Edge?

Industry tells us that students need more than a qualification to launch their professional career. Future Edge helps you, RMIT students, develop the additional, practical skills that employers are looking for.

Future Edge is a flexible program that you can complete at your own pace while you’re studying at RMIT. During the program, you'll:

  • Set up a personalised plan that outlines your employability goals and skill gaps
  • Build your skills and experiences by participating in co-curricular activities including workshops, industry events, volunteering, part-time work and RMIT Creds
  • Learn how to communicate your skills and experiences to potential employers, shape your résumé and boost your online portfolio.

The Future Edge journey

To begin your Future Edge journey, you must attend the specialised "Define your goals" workshop, facilitated by Josh Farr

The workshop will help you to: 

  • Understand how a goal setting framework will ensure you succeed
  • Understand the employability skills you must develop to stand out from the crowd
  • Develop a personalised plan that outlines your goals and actions

To find out more about the Define your goals workshop, watch this short introductory video.

Participate in co-curricular activities including workshops, industry events, volunteering, part time work, RMIT Creds and experiences.

Experiences outside of RMIT can be included in your Future Edge experience.

This program is tailored to your experience and needs, so the duration of the program depends on your individual path.

Learn how to demonstrate the skills you have developed and articulate your achievements.

Once you have completed the steps on your journey, update your résumé and complete a reflection exercise.
