10 competencies Employers are looking for new grades
1. Ability to work in teams There is no doubt that no one likes an employee who wants to shine in the spotlight. But unlike your student career, where you’re really the only one who can succeed or break your success, the job depends on the work of teams. It’s no surprise that 81% of recruitment managers know you can work with a wide variety of personalities. You need to learn to delegate, take direction, appreciate differences of opinion, and play for your own and your employees ’strengths and weaknesses. Being a team player means reliability and trustworthiness.
2. Problem-solving skills Seventy-nine percent of employers want excellent problem-solving skills for new college graduates. Many recruiting managers use behavioral interview clauses such as “tell me about time” or “give me an example” – to assess a job seeker’s problem-solving ability. This is how you make anecdotes that paint you a solution seeker. You do not need work experience to prove your problem solving. Think of times when you were proactive, innovative, or responsive to a challenge, such as the time you helped resolve a customer complaint while working at a campus coffee shop. Even better: show that you took the initiative to identify the problem and then solved it.
3. Analytical Skills Many recruitment managers (76.1%) want to hire beginners with analytical skills, which means they are looking for critical thinkers-people who know how to gather and evaluate information and then make good decisions based on this intelligence.
4. Oral Communication Skills About 73.2% of employment managers surveyed said that good oral communication skills are essential for new students. Communication skills create a tone in how people see you and help you build relationships
