The Age Gap…

Another batch of impressive ‘A’ level results last week will send a new cohort of learners off to university this autumn.   Come three years’ time or so, what skills will they bring to the marketplace?  Or rather – what will they be lacking?  A study of recruitment managers in the US  identified the top 5 gaps in graduate skills as being:

  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Attention to detail
  • Communication
  • Writing proficiency
  • Leadership

We’ve been reviewing our website (again!) and these are the very themes which we keep coming back to.  Our approach to social media is focused on using effective communication to help businesses meet their marketing objectives (which we go into more detail on here).  It’s been a while since I graduated!
