Business Graduate Competencies: Employers' Views on Importance and Performance.
Hodges, Dave; Burchell, Noel
Asia-Pacific Journal of Cooperative Education, v4 n2 p16-22 2003
Employers (154 of 1,303 responded) rated 25 entry-worker competencies and new graduates' performance. Eight of the top 10 were "soft" skills; ability and willingness to learn ranked highest. Graduates' performance was satisfactory only in 3 that were not in the top 10. Most employers (79%) felt that prior work experience was important for new business graduates. (Contains 45 references.)
