Gaining experience throughout your career journey is all about exposure to options and seizing opportunities, developing your skills, and making meaning of your experiences. Experiential learning connects you with practical experiences that include authentic and focused reflection. By gaining experience you are also developing transferable skills (think: myToolkit), clarifying interests and values (mySelf), increasing job knowledge (myOptions), and strengthening your employability (myNextMove).
