After your course, you must consider what you have learnt and what skills you will bring away with you.

Selling your transferable skills

Employers want to see evidence that you’ve developed the transferable skills that are essential in the global workplace.

Transferable skills are qualities or abilities that are developed in one context, such as your degree or work experience, but can be applied to any situation.

Surveys of graduate employers, and analysis of graduate recruitment literature and websites, show that the transferable skills employers look for include:

  • language and communication skills
  • the ability to work well in a team
  • business acumen
  • problem-solving ability
  • flexibility and adaptability
  • initiative
  • leadership potential
  • good judgement
  • integrity.
