Employability skills

One of the main reasons for going to university is to get a good job afterwards, and that means being able to talk about the skills that you have been developing your whole life. My students are going to have to sit a job interview as part of their English programme, and that's because we want to develop their employability skills. One key employability skill is being able to talk about employability skills! When I talk about these skills in class I find that international students do not know much of the key vocabulary that employers will want you to use when they interview you.

The University of Kent has an interactive Employability Skills Map to help you with this important vocabulary which you can access here.
