Abstract: In this study, a Work Experience Evaluation Template/Profile has been developed using the PebblePAD ePortfolio as a platform for Vacation Employment. It not only enables students to plan, reflect upon and record their work experience online, it also enables them to self-audit their skills and abilities which are considered to be essential graduation attributes. Additionally, PebblePAD allows lecturers/employers to provide effective and timely feedback at the individual level. Finally, this paper suggests how PebblePAD may be used to support student mobility and to enhance student engagement with Engineers Australia's Graduate Attributes.
