Employability - Tips for a Brighter Future

£5.99

Product description

Most full time, part time and adult students have decided to spend an enormous amount of their time on academic and vocational courses in order to increase their chances of pursuing a rewarding career. Such rewards may be financial, job satisfaction, self-fulfilment or for community spirit. In any case, their ultimate success depends not only on their qualification certificate but also on their ability to engage with their audiences in communication and writing. One test is usually at an interview where their employability is judged on many elements, one of which is the ability to communicate effectively. Increased chances of employability are not always realised through just having strong academic qualifications, but also having the soft skills of communicating and the confidence in the appropriate use and application of some basic terms and words used in the workplace, whether it be academic or operational. This book is divided into two parts; the first illustrates some typical job advertisements where many key words and phrases can be found; it is important that job applicants can highlight such key words and phrases and fully understand and apply these key words as they could easily form a basis of questions posed by the interviewer. The second part of the book offers explanations and supporting examples for the many common terms and words used in studies and the operational workplace, also providing examples of the appropriate application of such terms and key words

. Also included are some basic management tools and techniques such as S.W.O.T., P.E.S.T.L.E., the Loyalty Ladder, Blooms Ladder, etc. Knowledge and understanding of these tools and techniques will help the student and the reader to apply more effectively solutions to either case study scenarios or real work situations. Each word described will be followed with a Quiz question/exercise so the student can test their learning. Answers are provided at the rear of the book. The book is in fair condition, with obvious signs of wear on the front cover, mostly bowing and bent corners. Internally, though some pages have folded corners, the pages are clean, illustrations clear and binding strong. A useful tool for those leaving higher education and entering the workplace.
