Several studies have identified the skills most often listed in conservation job advertisements, including disciplinary knowledge, communication, IT, technical, project management, and leadership. Not all the skills can be easily developed during your studies, so the workshop will present practical resources and strategies that students can use to develop skills they don’t yet have or strengthen skills in which they have basic proficiency. Building relevant skills will add value to your CV, and help participants be more competitive for jobs and graduate positions.
