Employability skills: commercial awareness

Commercial awareness is perhaps one of the trickiest employability skills to define.

Leveraging the part-time job: from supermarket to superstar

Part-time jobs are often highly underestimated for the value that they provide to a CV and a hiring employer.

What do skills mean to different people: interpreting employability skills

Our employability webinars have featured a range of employers talking about a huge number of different topics. Each time we talk about employability skills, we find that there are slightly different meanings to each recruiter. Join us for this talk where we discuss the different interpretations of employability skills and how they might differ depending on the job that you’re going for.

Thursday 2 December 2021 – 2.00pm

Employability skills: resilience

Join us for this webinar where we’re breaking down yet another hard-to-define skill that has become a mainstay of modern recruitment. Are you truly resilient and what does that mean in practice? We’ll be talking about how you can maintain a growth mindset, learn from your mistakes and articulate both when you’re put on the spot at interview.

Thursday 16 December 2021 – 2.00pm

Revisiting the CV gap: can you do more now?

The CV Gap has been our most popular topic over the last two years. Join us for this webinar where we’ll revisit the topic, explore how virtual has changed the recruitment landscape and explore what we can (or cannot) do now that (we hope) the pandemic is on its last legs.
