According to the US-based National Association of Colleges and Employers’ Job Outlook 2012 survey, employers value teamwork, verbal communication skills, decision-making and problem-solving, and the ability to obtain and process information the most highly of their top ten desired traits. Surprisingly, the ability to create and edit written reports, and the ability to sell or influence others were rated least highly of the ten. Employers responding to the Job Outlook 2012 survey said they plan to hire 9.5 percent more new graduates in 2011-12 than they did in 2010-11.
