Product Description

Employers are constantly looking for people who possess the skills that are part of the core employability skills framework. These important skills are the ones that are easy to gain in everyday life - they don't take special, technical skills or experience. Students who include employability skills on their resumes are far more likely to gain employment than those who do not - or worse, don't even know what employability skills are. The ability to self market and seek out work based on strong employability skills will help Year 9, 10 and 11 students move into vocational placements, training, college, further study or workplaces.

The core employability skills are:

  • Manage career and work life
  • Work with roles, rights and protocols
  • Interact with others
  • Communicate for work
  • Connect and work with others
  • Recognise and utilise diverse perspectives
  • Plan and organise
  • Make decisions
  • Identify and solve problems
  • Create and innovate
  • Work in a digital world

So why do so many students overlook the importance of writing employability skills into their resumes?

This simple activity guides students through the process of identifying the core employability skills, thinking about what each one means to them and planning how they can show this skill to a potential employer and write it into their resume.
