Commercial Awareness Workshop 19/11 afternoon
Microsoft Teams • Thu 19 November 2020 14:00-16:00
"The world of work and your role in it."
A survey recently found that 35% of employers were dissatisfied with the business and customer awareness of graduates. Put simply "commercial awareness" is the ability to view situations from a commercial perspective. It is an understanding of what makes any business or organisation successful and the factors that influence this success. Graduates from all disciplines need to show business awareness of their market, not only to beat the competition for jobs but to perform in that role and deliver value for money. By attending this workshop, you will learn simple steps you can take to help you become commercially aware during your time at university and so that, when the time comes, you’re all set to wow employers and turn that dream job into a reality.
The workshop duration will likely be shorter than advertised and will involve a short exercise following to be completed and submitted back.
