A couple of years ago I was asked to give a talk about employability, with respect to graduates. I’m not an expert in that field, so I reached out to a few friends and companies to get some feedback about what they expect from new staff. I get questions about jobs all the time, so I figured I would write a short series of posts on the subject, just so I can refer people to them.
The posts in the series are as follows.
- Communication Skills
- Make Yourself Stand Out
- Stop Making the Same Mistakes
After doing the presentation I discussed it with the careers staff present, who confirmed this matched the feedback they were getting from their industrial contacts, so it seems the feedback I got from my contacts was on the money!
As I publish each post I will turn these bullet points into links.
Hope this helps.
