We live in a society that expects your academic career to go a bit like this: you go to school, attend College or University and then hopefully use what you’ve learnt to find a decent job. But becoming employable is not a matter of simply ticking boxes.
How employable you are is based on three key factors: knowledge, skills and experience. In an interview, employers ultimately want to know if you’ve got the knowledge, skills and experience to do the job. But because of the rate at which industry is evolving, the institutions that are responsible for providing you with knowledge, skills and experience are sadly not able to do enough to help you successfully launch a career in the 21st century.
