Activity Description

In this insightful activity, students will explore the essential skills that employers highly value in recent graduates. They will analyze a table that displays the importance of some skills as per the employers and the percentage of recent grads who are very well prepared for those skills.

As a part of this activity, students will embark on a self-assessment journey. They will not only evaluate the preparedness gap between employer expectations and graduate readiness but also rate their own level of preparedness for each skill on a scale of 1 to 10.

This self-reflection exercise encourages students to identify areas of strength and areas for improvement in terms of skills that are in demand in the job market.

Learning Objective

The activity aims to help students develop self-awareness regarding their preparedness for skills that are highly valued by employers.
