This is all about skills. Employers are looking for transferable skills, and always want to know about more than just your qualifications.
One of our Career Development Advisers can help you to identify the skills you have gained from your degree, your extra-curricular activities, your work experience and anything you do in your spare time. They can also help you to identify ways you can gain additional skills and to think about how you might help a potential employer see what you have to offer.
Skills are the building blocks of a successful CV and interview process.
