This research, conducted in collaboration with Kaplan University School of Business & Information Technology, focuses on the recruitment for business and IT positions. The survey identifies the leading skills and strengths organizations search for and the recruiting tools they find to be the most useful in gaining the most qualified candidates. Aside from educational training, nearly all organizations reported communication skills to be the most valuable skills for a job applicant, at 94%, followed by critical thinking skills (73%) and previous work experience (52%). The survey also features advice from HR professionals for job seekers looking to gain a competitive advantage.
