Your time at university has taught you skills that you can transfer to any number of careers. You could also have picked up other skills from volunteering, part-time work or participating on a sports team.
- Remember all those essays and presentations? That’s a communication skill.
- What are exams if not evidence of problem-solving? So is that scheduling issue you ironed out at the campus food bank or other volunteer job.
- If you incorporated feedback, or took part in group work while also doing solo projects, you showed you can be adaptable.
- You worked with minimum supervision and planned your time to achieve your goals, which shows leadership.
These are just some of the skills employers need. When you apply for a job, update your resumé so employers can easily see the skills you bring.
