Do you know what skills you’ve acquired at uni? People tend not to think much about these things. Transferable skills are useful in all kinds of professional contexts and you carry them with you from one job to the next.
If you want to convince an employer that you’re the right person for a job or an internship, you need the ability to present your skills with clarity and conviction. This workshop will make you aware of the transferable skills you’ve developed in your studies, at your temp jobs and in your extracurricular activities.
In the workshop, you’ll analyse a job offering and try to assess, as accurately as you can, what the employer is looking for. You’ll learn to distinguish between specialist and generic (though job-specific) skills. You will then catalogue your transferable skills and practice providing examples that show what skills you possess.
Upon completing the workshop, you’ll know exactly what your skills are and you’ll be better able to advertise them.
