The Top Five Non-technical Skills That Employers Are Looking For

On Wednesday Richard Dodd from Wildwood Ecology gave an excellent presentation on the Top Five Non-technical Skills That Employers Are Looking For - Identifying and developing the right skillset and mindset for a career as an ecologist. Richards started by giving some background on how he entered the sector and what he now does. Going on to discuss the 5 skills he thinks are important:  ⦁ Communication is key – this means being able to listen, interpret information and provide feedback in written and verbal forms.  ⦁ Time management – being able to prioritise and concentrate on specific tasks without distractions. Richard also talks about habit formation – this allows time to be broken up in to distinct chunks. ⦁ Project management – everyone has managed a project in their home life – draw on that experience to demonstrate your skills on a CV. How do you prioritise your time to solve a problem? ⦁ Problem solving – again you will have had to solve many problems in your everyday
