What Employers Want

Every year, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) puts out a study of the top skills and qualities employers want to see from college seniors.

This year’s study is out and the results may be surprising to you: Above all else employers seek candidates with:

  1. The ability to verbally communicate with persons inside andĀ outside the organization and
  2. The ability to work in a team structure
  3. The ability to make decisions and solve problems

You can find the full study here.

The good news: All of the top three skills are benefits of a liberal arts education!
