12 Essentials for Success: Competencies Employers Seek in College Graduates

  1. Working in a Diverse Environment: Learning from people who are different from you - and recognizing your commonalities - is an important part of your education and essential preparation for the future.
  2. Managing Time and Priorities: Managing how you spend your time, and on what, is essential in today's world. Learn how to sort priorities so you stay in control of your life.
  3. Contributing to a Team: Each person's contribution is essential to success. Having the ability to work collaboratively with others is vital. This includes identifying individual strengths and harnessing them for the group building consensus, knowing when to lead/ when to follow, and appreciating group dynamics.
  4. Navigating Across Boundaries: Life is filled with boundaries - good and bad. Discover how to avoid the boundaries that become barriers so you don't hamper the ability to collaborate with other people.
  5. Acquiring Knowledge: Learning how to learn is just as important as the knowledge itself. No matter what your future holds, you'll continue to learn every day of your life.
  6. Thinking Critically: Developing solid critical thinking skills means you'll be confident to handle autonomy, make sound decisions, and find connections between what you learn and how those opportunities will affect your future.
  7. Performing with Integrity: It only takes one bad instance to destroy years of good faith and good relationships. It's important to develop a code of ethics and principles to guide your life.
  8. Developing Professional Competencies: The end of college is the beginning of a new education. Build on what you already know and keep learning new skills. Your job will challenge you to grow in ways you haven't imagined.
  9. Communicating Effectively: Developing listening, interpreting, and speaking skills is just as important as reading and writing.
  10. Solving Problems: You may only have thought about problem-solving when you're faced with a crisis. Understand the process and mindset of successful problem-solving and you'll more easily handle the bigger challenges that come your way.
  11. Balancing Work and Life: You've got a lot to accomplish in a short time. How do you get it all done and still stay sane? The key is maintaining balance among the different parts of your life.
  12. Embracing Change: Just about every aspect of life is in a constant state of change. No matter how you feel about change, you have to learn to deal with it.
