Effectively Communicating Your Skills
Can you articulate your skills when interviewing for careers in Science and Health?
Employers expect you to be able to give concise and articulate answers to their questions about your professional skills in a job interview.
Do you know what those skills are and how to convince an interviewer that you have them? You might be very surprised by what employers are looking for.
Explore these options to see whether you are prepared for an interview:
- Option 1: Read a summary of the 16 Essential Science and Health Skill Sets. (1 minute review)
- Option 2: Quickly test your ability to articulate a particular skill. (1-5 minute exercise)
- Option 3: Find a friend and go directly to the “Practice and Review” my skill sets exercise. (You may also make a career advising appointment with an MSU Career Advisor for a professional mock interview using this same exercise.) (30-60 minute exercise)
