After graduation you have acquired job-specific skills that are essential to perform a job.

Depending on the job, communication is about being a good talker or a good writer. It involves being confident about speaking to people (face-to-face or over the phone). It also involves writing well enough to be understood in emails and memos.


Teamwork means being good at working with people – both the people you work with and other people that come into contact with your organisation.


Problem solving is about being able to find solutions when faced with difficulties or setbacks. Even if you cana��t think of a solution straight away, you need to have a logical process for figuring things out.


Initiative and enterprise are about being able to think creatively and to make improvements to the way things are. They’re also about looking at the bigger picture and how the way you work fits into that.


Planning and organising are about things like working out what is required to get a job done, and then working out when and how you’ll do it. They’re also about things like developing project timelines and meeting deadlines.


Self-management is about getting on with your work without someone having to check up on you every five minutes. You should also be able to stay on top of your own deadlines and be able to delegate tasks to other people to make sure things get done on time.
