Description

TO BOOK ON TO THIS WEBINAR PLEASE CLICK HERE.

In part two of this four-part webinar series. We will continue to explore the questions surrounding the ever-present skills-gap seen in so many university students upon graduating from their courses. We will focus on the perspectives of several students who themselves have seen, for better and for worse, the various consequences that arise when not armed with vital yet elusive soft-skills that can often give us the edge over our competitors.

This webinar will also focus on the proactive steps students can take to maximise their employability prospects when armed with a range of important industry-focused skills. This webinar will begin with a short presentation covering the topics described above, then it will open to a panel-style discussion where questions posed by audience members will be explored in detail. We look forward to seeing you there.
