The Skills Employers are Looking for in Employees
Besides computer and other technical skills, employers are in need of employees who posses the employability skills required to successfully perform their daily duties and responsibilities. In short, employability skills are the knowledge, habits, and character traits necessary to succeed in this rapidly changing world. Just like any other subject, these skills can be taught, practiced, and incorporated into everyone's life. Now, in the 21st Century, more than ever, employers are seeking candidates who have the following 10 employability skills:
2. Analysis/Solution Mindset (Problem Solving)
5. Digital Fluency (Good with Technology)
7. Entrepreneurial Mindset
10. Social/Diversity Awareness
Students can earn a digital badge/certificate in each of these 10 skills which demonstrates competency in these skills to employers. This can be the difference between a student receiving a job or not and being able to maintain it.
