Entrepreneurship students often have a unique skill set that can be valuable in the job market. For example, they may have experience with business planning, marketing, sales, financial management, and leadership.

Employability is not just about finding a job, but also about developing the skills and mindset that will help you succeed in your career. By focusing on developing a strong skill set, practical experience, and a professional network, you can enhance your employability.

Here are my other key tips to maximise your opportunities:

* Gain practical experience: Look for opportunities to gain practical experience in entrepreneurship, such as internships, volunteering, or starting your own business. This will help you develop your skills and demonstrate your ability to apply them in real-world situations.

* Network: Attend networking events and connect with professionals in your industry of interest. This can help you learn about job opportunities and make valuable connections.

* Develop your soft skills: In addition to technical skills, employers often look for candidates with strong communication / presentation, problem-solving, and teamwork skills. Make sure to develop these skills through coursework, extracurricular activities, and other experiences.

* Build a strong resume and online presence: Create a strong resume that highlights your skills and experience, and build an online presence on LinkedIn to showcase your work and connect with potential employers.

* Keep learning: Stay up-to-date with industry trends and developments, and continue to learn new skills through coursework, certifications, or other opportunities.
