Enthusiasm to gain new skills is crucial to getting jobs


A willingness to learn new skills is the second most important quality in a graduate recruit, as far as employers are concerned. It's value is exceeded only by that of good interpersonal skills. These are the findings of a new survey by the Association of Graduate Recruiters for the Financial Times, revealed in the FT today.

This willingness to learn was followed in importance in the employers' rankings by existing numeracy/IT proficiency, relevant experience, degreee mark, gap year activities, languages, and prestige of university.

The full survey will be published in the FT shortly.
