Differentiate yourself as a top candidate

When looking for a job or internship, you want to showcase your most relevant skills that will emphasize to an employer why you are a good candidate for the role. Sometimes, you’ll need to develop new skills to differentiate yourself as a top candidate.

The first step to do so is to take an inventory of what areas need further development to be successful in your desired career, and make a plan to acquire these new skills.  This may mean taking a course, joining a club, working on a special project, taking a training, or obtaining a micro-credential.

Skill development and maintenance is an ongoing practice in a successful career.  Schedule an appointment with your Career Coach to develop and discuss your skill development plan.
