Also revealed: when hiring young professionals, employers most often pay attention to interpersonal skills (mentioned by 44% of respondents), diligence (43%) and dedication (40%). But the ambition has allocated only 10% of respondents.

That should be able to graduate to employers lined up behind him in the queue?

the Most sought-after skills: the ability to process and critically evaluate information, ability to work in team, present and civilized to defend their point of view, to solve problems, as well as the ability to see the gaps in their knowledge, and most importantly – to eliminate them.

least of all when searching for employees at the initial position of the companies today are interested in, oddly enough, entrepreneurial and leadership skills.

– Critical when hiring graduates were: qualitative performance of the test task (it said 57% of respondents), experience (44%), a good University (38%) and success in professional competitions (36%) – said General Director of ANO “Russia – country of opportunities” Alexey Komissarov. – And the most popular way to check what is the graduate remains interview – oriented more than 60% of the companies.

Popular as a method of cases: the candidate propose to solve a real work task, and was invited to work only after successful internships.

meanwhile, of course turned out to be important only for 19 percent of employers. Perhaps because most companies are somehow involved in the training of young specialists conduct lectures at universities, designing training programmes. That is, your potential employees know they are literally “in your face”.

But, however, only 2% of employers evaluate the quality of University training as “excellent”, for most it is “good” and “secondary”.


none of the respondents have not identified remote work format as preferable for beginners to experts. “Udalenke” for graduates who need to integrate into the work, to get acquainted with the corporate culture and rules, is not an option.

However, a quarter of employers surveyed said the timetable for them, in General, not important. The main thing – the result. Another quarter for a flexible schedule. Half of the representatives of the companies prefer working on the standard schedule a full day.
