Are you a recent graduate looking for a job?
Do you know which skills employers want – and aren’t finding in graduates?
Employers want soft skills
graduates lack soft skills
This isn’t a happy situation!
As a consequence, hiring young people is seen as a risky move.
What can you do?
- If you’re an employer — offer work experience
- If you’re a graduate — do volunteering to gain soft skills development in return for your time
- If you’re a parent — do some research into the situation and make your voice heard by education policy makers, so they might wake up to the urgent need for soft skills
And whoever you are, check out your own soft skills!
Soft skills are essential to a happy, successful life.
We (still) don’t learn soft skills at school
So it’s up to us.
