To land your dream job (and then succeed at it) you need more than just a degree or qualifications.
Employers expect a whole set of other tangible skills that compliment your degree! These are called enterprise skills, and they include skills such as leadership, communication, emotional intelligence, collaboration, critical thinking and more.
For our third genYOU inspire session we will be welcoming three awesome industry speakers who will each talk about a key enterprise skill you need to succeed at work including; why you need it, how to be better at it and the tools to help you get there.
