A novel of twists and surprises

What Do Employers Want From Graduates

'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.'

Professor Lee Harvey, Director Centre for Research and Evaluation
