In today’s highly competitive and globalised marketplace, employers have more choice of applicants and will favour those with well-rounded employability skills. You need not only to ensure that you secure a good performance in a relevant degree programme you also need to prepare for the challenges and opportunities that await post graduation and transition to the global workforce.

Employers are often looking for skills that go beyond academic qualifications and experience. Employability skills are those skills necessary for getting, keeping and being successful in a job. So even if you have already secured your dream job, you still need to equip yourself with these skills to keep your job and promote to the next levels.
