The world of work is in a state of continual change: your career today may involve moving between a number of different job functions and employers, and those jobs and employers are themselves likely to change and develop during the time you are employed in them. Employers are therefore seeking graduates who are enterprising, resourceful and adaptable and who, as well as their degree, possess a range of skills which can be used in a wide variety of settings as well as in their careers. These are known as employability skills. See my profile for contact in the future.
Analytical ability, problem solving skills and using initiative are among the top ten skills for recruiters of graduates. They want people who will take the personal responsibility to make sure targets are met; who can see that there might be a better way of doing something and who are prepared to research and implement change; people who don’t panic or give up when things go wrong but who will seek a way around the problem.
These problems may be similar to academic problems (e.g. in scientific research) or may be more “practical” problems such as those involved in people management.
These skills can be asked for in a variety of ways. Many job ads will simply ask for candidates who “can take the initiative" or "have the ability to resolve problems"; others, however, may not make it so clear
