Career Competencies: Teamwork and Collaboration

NARRATION: Teamwork and Collaboration deals with building collaborative relationships with colleagues and customers representing diverse cultures, races, ages, genders, religions, lifestyles, and viewpoints. The individual is able to work within a team structure, and can negotiate and manage conflict. Teamwork is one of our core expectations; by hiring individuals with our desired attributes, we are able to create high-performing teams and ensure our employees can feel valued and empowered to contribute to the company’s mission to help people do more, feel better and live longer.
INTERVIEW 1: Last semester, I had five classes and all of them forced me to work in a group at some point and this allowed me to develop teamworking skills and I feel like I can put this towards my career in advertising in the future because I’ll be able to work in group settings with my peers to create advertising campaigns.
INTERVIEW 2: So UNC has prepared me for teamwork in the professional field by offering a ton of classes that have groupwork incentives and just group projects as assignments, and so that allowed me to work with people from different backgrounds and also people that may not necessarily agree with what I think but we all come together to work towards a goal. And so, through these interactions, I’ve learned how to work well in a teamwork setting.
