Did You Know?

According to the 2013 survey conducted by National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), employers rated “ability to verbally communicate with persons inside and outside the organization” as the top skill they are seeking in recent college graduates.  This was followed closely by “ability to work in a team structure” as the second most desirable skill. 

In a related NACE survey, employers were asked if college students have effective communication skills.  79% said no.
