We live in a demanding, competitive and globalised society. Linguistic ability, while being the cornerstone both of successful studies and a rewarding professional life, must be enhanced by transferable skills such as effective communication and presentation, higher order thinking, problem solving and well-expressed, substantiated argument. At IMEC, we understand that, in order to be prepared for a world undergoing quantum change and exponential growth, students must be confidently equipped with both academic knowledge and soft skills
On average a potential employer spends 6 seconds when perusing each CV for a short-list of candidates, and judgments on applicants at the interview stage may be made within 20 seconds. The skills required to produce the best impression and the greatest impact are often not innate - they have to be acquired through training which, at IMEC, we provide.
