Commercial awareness is one of the key attributes cited by many employers as being essential to employability.

There is no one definition of ‘commercial awareness’ and it can also be referred to as “business or organisational awareness”. It is about showing a broad interest in business and current affairs, and more specifically understanding what an organisation does and the environment in which it operates. This is a highly valued skill by employers and one they say is still lacking in many graduates.

This Skills Gap Conversation covers:

  • What does commercial awareness means in terms of careers
  • How you can build that skill and gain that knowledge
  • How you can demonstrate your commercial awareness during an interview
