What do employers say they are looking for in new hires?
Do they want drones who are good at following instructions and memorizing the “right answers,” who like working by themselves so their perfect grades aren’t threatened by the unpredictability of group work?
Here’s what employers do look for:
- Leadership experience
- Ability to work in a team
- Communication skills (written)
- Problem-solving skills
- Strong work ethic
A GPA above 3.0, computer skills, and a friendly personality are also on the list, but not as high as you might expect.
