Commercial awareness – why do I need it?
Many graduate recruiters complain about the lack of business or commercial awareness in applicants.
Commercial awareness – what is it?
Commercial awareness combines an understanding of the market in which their organization operates; an understanding of where a vacancy fits into the overall structure, of where the organization is going and how it is getting there and an appreciation of the “big picture” from supplier to customer; along with a financial awareness of current issues that may impact upon the “bottom line” of the organization.
