Description
A degree is necessary to secure a graduate role, but employers are looking for much more. The key is showing a potential employer what you can offer BEYOND your credentials. This is not a standard business course on writing job applications and practicing interview techniques. We’ve thought deeply about what actually matters to employers and how you can develop the skills and qualities they value. This course will show you how to take your experiences, extract what you’ve learned from them and present them in a way that would be attractive to an employer.  We’ll help you develop your employability, which is the set of achievements, skills, and personal attributes that make you attractive to an employer, so that you can successfully navigate the recruitment process and be effective in your job. You’ll hear from: Employers discussing what they value when hiring new graduates Current students who have maximized their university experience Graduates who have transitioned successfully into the workplace We’ll also share our knowledge and the perspectives of other experts in this area.
