Data, Trends & 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
