Employability Skills Diagnostic

Assess your employability, upskill with bespoke resources, kick-start your career

97% of employers are looking for graduates with a set of core skills but only 22% agree that graduates leave university with them.

The Employability Skills Diagnostic is an easy-to-use tool for undergraduates on CMI Dual Accredited Degree courses, and can bridge that gap, ensuring you finish your degree and can evidence the key skills employers want.

What is the Employability Diagnostic?

This self-assessment diagnostic has been designed to help you identify the areas you need to develop in line with the top skills currently being looked for by employers. These core skills are aligned against our Professional Standard and backed by our recent employability research, carried out in collaboration with employers.

If you are currently an undergraduate on a CMI Dual Accredited degree, you will be able to use the diagnostic to assess yourself against the key skills employers are looking for and upskill yourself during your course with resources tailored to your skills gaps.

On leaving university my Dual Accredited degree with CMI helped me develop the skills to adapt to the working environment. You become a well-rounded professional, not just an academic.

How does it work?

The Assessment allows you to rate your current level of confidence, knowledge and understanding of a series of questions on a scale of 1 to 5.

This tool together with our Career Development Centre will help you design the perfect CV and carry out mock digital interviews, ensuring you are a candidate of choice.
