Contemporary Employability Skills – Acquire Essential skills for work-readiness with a competitive advantage
The transition from Campus to a corporate environment is a big adjustment for many graduates. Expectations and responsibilities in the workplace are very different from those in Universities, all job seekers need employability skills to meet the uncompromised needs of employers.
In addition, the forces that control the job market have caused a lot of change. The world is rapidly changing and most career models that used to work in the past just don’t work anymore. The whole model of go to school, get better grades then you will be assured of a good job no longer works. Economists teach us that when the supply of something is high it often causes low demands in the market and so is the case with the job market. Universities and other institutions are producing graduates at a high rate than the job market can absorb resulting into increased unemployment.
Job seekers should start developing skills that will get them employed and remain employable because with a high supply of job seekers employers are in control and are left with no option but to seek out for the best of the best.
PEC seeks to advise job seekers across all walks of academic disciplines that getting a dream job in a corporate organization of your choice is very possible and entirely rests in your hands. In Africa our mind-set is too much inclined towards patronage (who you know in the company). Patrimonial job seeking is responsible for poor public and private employee performance. Most graduates cannot stand on their own to confront the Human Resource Managers over their ability and competence to add value to the organization. At the end of this course, you will have built confidence and competences required for your dream job.
Every successful career had a start, signup for PEC One and let’s get you equipped to achieve your dreams.
Every graduate should know that what we term to be luck is when opportunity meets preparation.

Why you should take this course
Most employers look for certain skills and qualities in job seekers in addition to academic qualifications. Known as employability skills, these skills may not be job-specific, but they play an important role in improving your performance and value when employed. They can also have measurable impact on your ability to progress in your career. In PEC we explain the employability skills you need to increase your chances of getting your dream job.
This course is not just focused on job search. It’s also transformational thinking to help you understand and apply the concepts of personal branding to establish yourself as being remarkable, become financially independent and do work that matters. After completing this program, you will be able to go from being a passive job searcher looking for work, to an active seller of what you can offer to help someone make money, save money or solve a problem
Since most job seekers TELL what they have done instead of SELL what they can do, you’ll discover ways to effectively conduct a job search promoting yourself as valuable talent using your personal brand. Most information about how to find or change jobs is just focused on the process and offers nothing about how and why you need to establish yourself as talent and have recognizable personal brand. It’s time to heighten personal brand, enroll for PEC and get the essential employability skills to give you a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
