Teamworking skills


                                                                                       Reflect on these factors


  • transmitting own ideas/skills effectively and contributing to discussions
  • respecting / empathising / supporting others
  • co-operating/collaborating
  • negotiating/persuading
  • managing / facilitating / training a group
  • mediating between people
  • helping to solve problems


Employers always look for team players and even the blandest of CVs usually has a reference to teamwork. So if everybody is a team player, how do employers decide? Most graduate employers will use a series of tests to determine how much a team player you are. In the interview and application forms they will look for strong examples of when you performed well in a team. There are different roles within a team and a strong example doesn't always imply you are the leader.
