Taking Your Graduate
Experience onto the Job Market
Whether it is an academic or a non-academic employer, being able to communicate what you researched and learned during your graduate degree can give you a leg up. What it comes down to are skills and how those translate to the job you are applying for.
According to LinkedIn Learning the top 5 most in-demand soft skills are:
  • Creativity
  • Persuasion
  • Collaboration
  • Adaptability
  • Emotional Intelligence
Graduate school has given you the space, the challenges, and the opportunities to learn and grow and face many different tasks. Now is the time to reflect; how did what you accomplished during your graduate career foster these skills and how can you explain that to the next person to interview you?
