Strong commercial awareness is critical in the application and interview/assessment process for any job, internship or spring week/insight programme and it can make the difference between receiving and offer and not. A recent survey by the Association of Graduate Recruiters found leading firms believe Commercial Awareness was the number one skill graduates lacked the most but these sessions are here to help you get ahead over the Summer months.They’ll be sure to both broaden your understanding, and help you to develop an interest in your chosen field.
Concerned about your career prospects during times of economic and global crisis? Worried that Covid-19 might make it more difficult to find employment and gain experience? Had your job or internship moved online, postponed or cancelled? Heard horror stories about the difficulties of landing and converting jobs and internships during the Great Recession? In this invaluable session Gwyn will explain not just how best to navigate the current crisis, but how to use it to your advantage.
Commercial awareness is about understanding of how industries and businesses work and involves knowing what’s going on in the world, following the latest developments and analysing the way it might impact on your chosen sector and company. Unfortunately, becoming commercially aware does not happen overnight. It must be developed over a period of time and is not a static concept; it is dynamic and constantly changing so be sure to join Gwyn for these invaluable sessions and make the most of them!
