Qualities/Skills Sought By Employers

The National Association of Colleges and Employers recently released its Job Outlook 2012 survey [link no longer available] through which employers rank the qualities and skills they seek in job candidates:

Survey participants rated “ability to work in a team structure” and “ability to verbally communicate with persons inside and outside the organization” as the two most important candidate skills/qualities. These are followed by candidates’ “ability to make decisions and solve problems,” “ability to obtain and process information,” and “ability to plan, organize, and prioritize work.”
