Skills

 

So your biomedical sciences degree might not have given you Greco-Roman Wrestling skills, have taught you to heel click, or tap dance/rhythmically shuffle like Sir Bruce Forsyth, but it will have given you some downright irresistible transferable skills:

Advanced I.T. Skills

Microsoft office? Child’s play! You’ve got highly developed I.T. skills that’d run rings around the average schmuck.

Analytical Skills

You’re better than Shearer and Hansen put together. You’re even better than Gary Neville. Fortunately, your top-notch analytical skills also extend beyond the world of football punditry.

Attention to Detail

You can spot a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can even spot a specific needle in a massive stack of needles. You’re just that sharp.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.

Data Handling

You can compile, organise and analyse data. Qualitative data? Quantitative data? It doesn’t matter. You’ve got it nailed.

Independence

You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.

Leadership

You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Numeracy

Forget 2 + 2 = 4, you’ve got the numeracy skills to give Carol Vorderman a run for her money.

Presentation

You speak clearly, you’re confident, and you can hold the attention of a room. Every time you give a presentation, you have the audience eating out of the palm of your hand. Not literally, though! That’d be weird.

Problem Solving

You’re a bit like Jimmy McNulty in The Wire. You might swear a lot, but you can solve problems quickly and logically without too much head-scratching.

Research

Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Teamwork

You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.
