Topic: Employer Advice Class 2014
According to a recent survey of nearly 1000 Canadian employers, graduates of the Class of 2014 graduates should focus on how they can be a contributor to the team at work, not on how they would one day make a great leader. This is according to the outcome of an annual survey conducted by the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers – CACEE.
Each year CACEE surveys employers who hire college and university graduates, asking them about their current and future hiring activities and preferences. One of the questions provides employers with a list of 20 characteristics they might find in a candidate, and asks them to rank them according to how they are valued. Canadian employers have named the same Top Five for three years running, and they are also consistent in naming their Bottom Five.
The Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE) is a national non-profit partnership of employer recruiters and career services professionals. Our mission is to provide professional networking and development opportunities, information, advice, and other services to employers and career service professionals.
