10 skills employers look for in 20-somethings
Posted on Tue, Nov 19, 2013

Breaking into the real world can be tricky, but sometimes just a few simple skills can really give one candidate an edge over another.

Recent college grads who can work effectively in a team, make decisions and solve problems, and plan, organize, and prioritize work might have an easier time at landing a job than those who lack those qualities.

Those are the top three skills employers said they look for in new hires, according to a recent survey conducted by the Bethlehem, Pa.-based National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

NACE surveyed more than 200 employers from August through September about what they believe are the most important qualities and skills that job seekers need today.

Click through the slideshow to see the full list. The skills are rated from 1-5, with 1 being “not at all important” and 5 being “extremely important.”
