What is Commercial awareness?
Commercial awareness is a fundamental requirement for the vast majority of corporate professional roles. Its precise definition however, eludes a large proportion of students.
Commercial awareness is having excellent knowledge of current affairs and most pertinently, knowing the implications of commercial issues on your field of work. The primary feature of good commercial awareness is the ability to recognize that no commercial event is isolated. All events have consequences that can affect seemingly unrelated industries. Good commercial awareness is demonstrated through your ability to quickly recognise the potential impact of commercial and economic issues but also your ability to form your own opinions on these issues.
