There is an agile movement spreading quickly throughout the world and this is highlighted with enlightening company case studies including Airbus, GE, Goldman Sachs, L’Oréal, Netflix and Unilever. These companies, and many more, will seek candidates that align with their needs, who have an agile mindset with industry knowledge and skills including:  

  • Commercial awareness of an organization, its corporate objectives and association with the wider world;
  • An alignment with the culture and structure of existing and future companies;
  • Industry techniques and technological awareness for process improvement and product/service development;
  • A high level of emotional intelligence, core to intrapersonal skills and the development of interpersonal skills;
  • A multimodal learning style to process information faster;
  • An entrepreneurial spirit to take risks in seeking innovation and embracing change for continuous improvement; and
  • Mental resilience and perseverance to overcome challenges and execute both long-term company objectives and your own career plan

With step-by-step methodologies, learn how to increase your productivity, deliver business growth, and contribute to the global economy – proving your return on investment for future employment after graduation as an early apprentice, and throughout your Career Progression Plan as a future professional. 

The worked examples will help to create an eye-catching CV, write a persuasive covering letter, deliver an effective presentation, and answer 10 common interview answers – The Agile Way


“This book will be a great asset to undergraduates who wish to enter industry, both during and after their studies and to apprentices, who have good practical experience but perhaps need to learn the importance of ‘soft skills’ for an engineer. It is a valuable volume and teaches the mindset and skills necessary to be successful in industry.” - Eddie Welch, BSc, MSc(Tech), CEng, FIET (former University Industrial Liaison Manager)
