Develop skills

Some career paths obviously require certain key skillsets – that’s why if you want to study Actuarial Science, you need to have exceptional mathematics skills. However, it’s one thing to say that you have developed the skills, but how can you prove to a potential employer that you’ve developed them? 

One way is to point to your degree result and argue that it proves you are exceptionally talented and hardworking. A better way is to give examples of where you have developed these skills – particularly for some of the less specific skills. 

Take a look at the opportunities that offer you the opportunity to develop and demonstrate your mastery of these key employability skills.
