Becoming Career Smart recap

In week 1, we learned developing transferrable skills like communication and recognising professional credentials are critical to our success.

We have covered a range of topics and started you on the journey to becoming more career smart.

Specifically we focused on:

  • 21st century skills
  • credentials and how they can benefit our future careers
  • communication skills and how this was done well for a specific environment and profession.

I hope you enjoyed this week and I look forward to seeing you in Week 2. We will focus on success, how reflection is important and conducting a skills audit.
