  • College lecturers on ways to improve employability +

    By Fung Lan Yong As the job market becomes increasingly competitive, tertiary students need to improve their employability skills to differentiate themselves from the crowd. Enhancing their employability skills will not only give them an edge in the job search, but also position them for jobs with better prospects. Employability means more than just getting a job; jobseekers must exhibit the skills and mindset to gain, create and maintain work; in short, they must be able to perform effectively to contribute to organisational success. In short, having good employability skills allows individuals to get a job, manage their career and adapt to challenging work situations. Personal qualities, teamwork and communication skills According to Chun How Chin, academic manager at Jesselton College Sabah, tertiary students can improve their employability in several ways. "Jobseekers should possess not only the hard skills gained through academic studies, but also the personal qualities that enhance job performance. Tertiary students can enhance their knowledge and skills by enrolling in continuing education or joining internships, besides finding mentors or joining trade associations for enrichment," he began. Tertiary students must develop self-motivation and initiative tend to have better employability. "Employees are expected to work unsupervised, so they must be able to make responsible decisions independently to obtain positive outcomes. They can show that they have initiative by getting relevant training and work experience. Further, they can undertake roles, placements or courses that encourage them to clearly define task requirements and successfully implement them. Since organisations regard self-motivation and Read More

The book is divided into four sections – the writing process, academic essays for analysis, sample essays and checklists. Published by Lambert Academic Publishing (LAP) Germany, the book is available on eBay and Amazon.com. Each step of the writing process for different genres, including descriptive, cause-effect, compare-contrast and argumentative essay, is thoroughly explained. Yong said in a press release that the significance of academic writing is explained through the book. “Tertiary students should know its value, not only as a course prerequisite but also as a soft skill vital for professional development. Many disciplines, including business and engineering, evaluate students’ academic performance in terms of how logically they reason and how well they write,” she said. She stressed that quality writing goes beyond the classroom. “While it equips tertiary students with the expressive skills that have a positive influence on their academic performance, it is far more importantly a preparation for engagement with the world outside.” The book was also written with working professionals in mind. Dr. Fung Lan Yong (Academic Writing Author) “Since many professionals spend a significant amount of their working hours writing, the ability to write well is crucial to their job performance. In fact, many business managers and engineers write more frequently on the job than English lecturers.” Yong has previously published research articles including Read More
