Skills for Working Life
This programme is intended to provide students with an insight into key skills employers indicate they need students to recognise, develop and relate effectively to the graduate workplace. Students will gain an appreciation of how to manage the graduate recruitment process, how to be effective in the workplace and how to be active in their own career development. Topics include Presentation & Facilitation skills, Acing Graduate Interviews, Value Chain Analysis etc.
The course comprises eight weekly informal and interactive sessions each lasting up to two hours (usually around 1hr, 45mins). During these sessions, students are able to ask questions and interact with recruiters and learn from their experiences.
Students who attend a minimum of six sessions will be awarded the UCD Career Development Centre non-credit bearing Certificate in Skills for Working Life at a presentation of certificates in late April/early May. The Certificate will be recorded on students’ Diploma Supplement which forms part of your final transcript from UCD.
