Employers want to see your transferable skills
Employers are now putting a greater impetus on students showing that they have developed skills that can be transferred to the workplace during their studies. However, many students are not aware of this, meaning they struggle to sell themselves to employers.
Occumi uses a research backed algorithm to identify your transferable skills based on your educational qualifications and work experience. Learn why employers want your transferable skills, and uncover the opportunities that your skills can lead to!
