What are your strengths? And can you describe them?


Graduates who are self-aware and who can describe their strengths have always been in demand by graduate recruiters. But in my experience, this is something students often find hard to do! Now, more and more employers are asking asking questions about personal strengths (known as ‘strengths-based’ interview questions) as well as the traditional competency-based interview questions, so it is crucial to know what is involved. The Careers Service is offering a new 1 hour workshop about this topic next week on  Wednesday 3 Feb 2016 from 1-2pm in AG24(a)  in the College building. The workshop will enable you to:

  • Develop a clear understanding of the strengths and skills employers are looking for at interviews, assessment centres and on application forms and cover letters
  • Clarify what your own strengths are by using a tried and tested format
  • Understand how your skills are different from other peoples and learn more about the strengths of others
  • Become confident in describing and demonstrating your personal strengths at job interviews and assessment centres

You can book your place on the Strengths Workshop here
