Data, Trends and Transitions

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), "beyond a relevant major for the position and a strong GPA, problem-solving skills and the ability to work as part of a team are the attributes employers most want to see on resumes." Other skills they are looking for this year include:

  • a strong work ethic
  • analytical/quantitative skills
  • written and oral communication skills
  • leadership

How are you gaining these skills? Through student organizations, class projects, or an internship? Consider joining the Talent Gateway as a way to reflect on the skills you are developing and how they are transferable to any workplace.
