Know yourself

Why is it important?

Employers want to know about why you think you’re suitable for the job they are advertising, and you need to be able to articulate clearly what you’ve got to offer and why it is relevant to the post.

Think about how you can showcase and highlight your skills. In addition to your degree this is what can set you apart and give you an edge in the recruitment process. That’s why it is so important that a CV, an application form and even your LinkedIn profile should always promote your skills and highlight the achievements from all areas of your life.
