What Do Employers Want
'Employers want recruits who are going to be effective in a changing world.
They want people who can deal with change - indeed who thrive on it. They want
intelligent, flexible adaptable employees who are quick to learn. Graduates
are much more likely than non-graduates to meet these criteria. In a world
of uncertainty employers want people who are able to work on a range of tasks
simultaneously. They do not need people who are resistant to new approaches
or who are slow to respond to cues.'
