Student Careers and Skills

Strengthening Your Graduate Employability

Posted by: Alex Linley

 

Our partnership with the University of Warwick, and particularly Student Careers and Skills, continues to go from strength to strength.

 

In a recent blog post for Student Careers and Skills, Laura Firmin, Warwick Sociology graduate and now Capp Intern, shares her experiences of how getting to understand her strengths more, particularly with a debrief from a qualified Strengths Practitioner, helped her to enhance how she tells her story at interview and build her graduate employability prospects.

 

Laura’s post on The Careers Blog begins:

 

“We recently ran a piece on how to crack Strengths-based interviews as an increasing number of high-profile employers are adopting a Strengths-based approach to graduate recruitment. But understanding more about the Strengths psychology can help you even before you submit that application. Laura Firmin, a Warwick Sociology graduate, explains in this post how she has personally benefitted from completing a Realise 2 Strengths profile and discussing her profile with a qualified practitioner…”

Reflections on School Leavers’ Fortnight

Posted by: Alex Linley & Nicky Garcea, as part of School Leavers’ Fortnight

 

Over the last two weeks on The Capp Blog, we have focused on helping school leavers tackle some of the big questions they face as they consider moving into the world of work or undertaking future study.

 

Our blog topics over the course of School Leavers’ Fortnight have taken in topics including:

  • Employability – what it is and how to demonstrate it
  • How to differentiate yourself so that you stand out on an application form
  • Insights into the mind of an interviewer and tips for interview technique
  • How to help students and young people spot their strengths and apply them to their choices about future courses and careers.

 

We hope you have enjoyed reading the blogs and – more importantly – that they have helped you to help the students and young people you know who are grappling with these challenges at this stage of their lives.

 

A recurrent theme throughout our advice over this fortnight has been the importance of helping people to know, understand and maximise their strengths. For this, nothing is better than Realise2, Capp’s online strengths assessment and development tool.

 

If you want to help a young person find their right direction in life, you would be well advised to give them the most powerful gift of strengths. This is what Student Careers and Skills have been doing at the University of Warwick – and it’s making a real difference.
