What recruiters say

A good way to better understand what employability means is to listen to what the people who recruit graduates say about what they are looking for.

In the video, a range of senior employers and entrepreneurs put employability into context by explaining the skills, attitudes, behaviours and qualities they are looking for when they meet prospective employees.

Understanding better why these factors matter to employers will help you to present your own skills and experience in the most relevant way.

The first thing an employer actually picks up on is not your skills, it isn’t your knowledge, it’s your attitude.
