Future You

Get the skills employers want

October 14, 2019

In this episode of Future You, the podcast from graduate careers experts Prospects, we're talking about skills - how to identify the ones you've got, how to get new ones, and how to show employers that you have them.

Careers adviser Amy Carpenter (02:12) provides advice on how to go about self-assessing your skills and has some great tips on how to develop new skills. Then Francesca DiTano from Explore Learning (11:05) gives us an employer's perspective on the skills they expect graduates to have - and which ones are too often missing.
