What skills do you need for a Commerce course?

Good with numbers

You’re the one who everyone wanted to ‘borrow’ add maths homework from, back in school (But of course you said no, because that wouldn’t be right!) While everyone else struggled with maths as they fumbled with fingers all out, slowly curving one by one into their palm, you already finished all the sums, checked the answer (A formality) and packed your bag to head home.

Eye for detail

If you’re a detail-oriented person, you pay attention to the little things. That means you may like sharp creases in your jeans and crisp shirts, but it goes beyond attire or an obsession with making lists. It means you’re conscientious and focused on accuracy and precision. You pride yourself on being a perfectionist. You’re also patient and persistent in pursuing answers to challenging questions.

Well Read

While your friends complain about how boring life is, and that there isn’t anything to do, you’re busy reading. Not magazines, but substantial books. Novels, autobiographies, the latest updates in politics, education, economy, even why Kim Kadarshian went off Instagram for 2 weeks. You’re well read on every aspect possible, and you’re proud of it.

Good with your Hands

While there is quite a bit of theoretical information you are capable of consuming, you’re equally adept with hands-on work. You prefer to be front and centre, and right smack in the middle of any issues where you can deal with and fix, complicated and sometimes tedious issues, all for the good of a company.
