Employers Views of Higher Education

College graduates are looking for more ways to stand out in their job searches. They are using applied learning experiences to give them an advantage during the applicant process.

More hiring managers still have confidence in higher education and the value of a college degree.

In addition, they believe that a liberal education or workforce preparedness provides knowledge and essential skills for career success.

An Association of American Colleges & Universities survey of nearly 500 executives and hiring managers from businesses were asked what matters most.

The majority stated that critical thinking and analysis, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication through writing and speaking would consistently rank highest over time.
