Why your Ability to Build Professional Relationships Should Always be Evidenced on your CV.


It’s very difficult nowadays to find a job description which doesn’t include essential competencies such as ‘working well as part of a team’ or ‘good communicator’.

However, more and more we are noticing that employers are including a person specification in their job descriptions.

In other words, employers are not just judging your skills, competences and qualifications, but also your approach to work and your ability to assimilate into an existing working group.

Your attitude towards working with others is held in similar regards to your ability to carry out the duties of your job.

Some employers even go as far as to claim that they hire mainly on attitude as this can make or break the productive dynamics of their workforce.

So, here’s the question: How can you evidence your ability to create and maintain professional relationships?

The Open Awards Level 2 Certificate and Diploma in Business Skills includes valuable units which help you to explore exactly this.

You will explore:

  • Boundaries of professional relationships
  • How to respond to different sets of behaviours
  • How to both give and respond to constructive criticism

After all, a business is not a building or a set of policies, but a group of people working together to achieve a collective goal.

So, whether you are a job seeker looking to evidence your knowledge, or an employee wanting to add to your professional development, this qualification may be just what you’re looking for.
