Employability Lab

"A bridge to your professional future". After the success of the previous editions, the career guidance programme, realised in collaboration with the Department of Psychology, is back to support Sapienza graduates in the job search process. The programme is divided into three consecutive steps in order to guarantee an increasing number of graduates the opportunity for personal development.

"What are my assets? What strengths do I have? What do I like to do? What paths can I take to actively seek work?"

Starting to ask yourself these questions as soon as you graduate can enable you to better target your job search efforts, using tailored strategies for your professional project.

The Employability Lab activities are divided into three consecutive steps. Each participant can freely decide whether to stop at the first step, or to continue to the second step, or to complete the whole pathway up to the third step. Those who complete the course will receive an 'Employability Lab' Open Badge to be included on their CV and LinkedIn profile.

Recipients: graduands (who have sat all their exams), recent graduates and/or Sapienza graduates who feel the need for orientation in order to enter the world of work.

If you are close to entering the world of work or are already actively looking for work, do not miss this opportunity!

Why participate:

  • to become aware of your resources, your characteristics and the reference context;
  • to orientate the actions on which to focus your job search;
  • to start your professional development path.

Offered activities: the course is divided into three consecutive steps.


First step - Information webinars

Two webinars, open to Sapienza graduands and recent graduates:

  • 1st live webinar (in Italian) " ll ruolo dell'employability e delle risorse personali per la ricerca proattiva del lavoro" on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, from 11:00 to 13:00 Book on Jobteaser
  • 2nd webinar (in Italian) "Mercato del lavoro e canali per la ricerca del lavoro", lasting about one and a half hours, will be recorded for later viewing (access credentials will be provided during the first meeting).

Please note: participation in the first webinar is preparatory and indispensable for access to the next steps of the course!


Second step - Experiential group workshop

An experiential online workshop, of about 3 hours, carried out in a small group and led by an orientation psychologist, to initiate a process of reflection and peer comparison on strengths, areas of personal improvement in relation to the labour market and the reference context.

Access is restricted to a maximum of 15 graduates or graduands (who have sat all exams) who will book after following the introductory webinar. For Bachelor's graduates, participation is allowed for those who have decided not to continue their studies with a Master's degree but are instead actively looking for a job.


Workshop schedule - You can choose one of the available dates (bookings will open from February 6th, following the information webinar):

  • February 14, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
  • March 6, 2024, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
  • March 13, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Participation in the workshop is preparatory to the individual course.


Third step - Individual development path

  • the filling in of a biographical questionnaire and the Orientamentis Sapienza questionnaire for the recognition of individual characteristics related to employability
  • an interview aimed at providing feedback on the strengths and areas for improvement that emerged from the questionnaires and at identifying objectives in line with one's professional project
  • a follow-up interview and possible redefinition of professional objectives.

The module is intended for participants of the experiential workshop who are engaged in job search.

Information for participation in the interviews will be provided at the end of the workshop.

Those who complete the course will obtain the Open Badge "Employability Lab" to be included in their CV and LinkedIn profile.
