Employers typically look for a variety of skills and the aim is to stand out of the crowd. It is essential for candidates to communicate effectively and to market their skills convincingly.

We will start by changing your perspective to that of a recruiter and what they are looking for. You will then learn how to develop your very own communications strategy.
