The term commercial awareness is used widely in recruitment but what does it mean?
On one level it’s the ability to understand what’s going on in the business world and even more importantly how this may affect the industry sector for which you’re applying. On another level it could be described as what you may have noticed whilst undertaking part-time employment or work experience which can help you understand and explore business issues. This session will equip you with starting points for developing strong commercial awareness and provide some guidance on how to apply this both in a selection process and throughout your future career. You’ll have developed several key transferable skills through various forms of work experience and we will help you recognise and articulate them.
