We recently partnered with Internships.com, the world’s largest internships marketplace, to conduct a survey on recent graduates entering the workforce and the digital and technical skills employers are looking for in the war for talent.
The survey results reveal that nearly 1 in 4 employers say recent college grads are unprepared for entry-level positions, with 37% of employers finding it difficult or very difficult to find qualified candidates.
This outlook may seem grim for recent grads; however, the data suggests that students, universities, and employers can bridge this apparent skills gap: the development of digital and technical skills, regardless of undergraduate major or preferred industry/career pathway, will meet employers’ needs and help students find further value from their higher education experience.
