WIL and your professional identity

Professional identity shapes how you approach your career and continues to develop over your lifetime.

For successful career outcomes, you need to be:

  • Aware of your own personal and professional identity
  • Flexible so you can adapt and transfer skills and knowledge to unfamiliar settings.

Workplace experiences contribute to your self-efficacy, self-concept, self-confidence, self-esteem and self-identity. Social interactions in the workplace influence your perceptions of self and may stimulate ‘personal transformations’ that shape and reshape your professional identity.
