A frequent question asked in most interviews and one that most recent graduates struggle to answer.
While your academic qualifications do matter, the skills you possess tend to stand out more with potential employers. Yes, you have a 1st class in Computer Science, but can you code an app? Can you build a website or execute digital strategies for a brand?
Possessing hands-on skills related to the job offer instantly makes you more marketable to the employer.
Take the time out to learn relevant skills in your niche on online platforms like SkillShare, Udemy, Coursera and even Youtube.
Some of these platforms also offer recognized certifications that you can include on your CVs too.
