In a new survey by Experience, Generation Y is unclear about the necessary skills for success in their careers. The survey explored the ideas of both employers and Generation Y. Experience found that 54% of Gen Y respondents were unclear about exactly the skills considered desirable by employers.
But a large number of Gen Y respondents felt that they were not lacking necessary skills desired by employers. This optimism contrasted with the reality of employers believing Generation Y was deficient in important skills. Employers can take confidence in the study’s findining that 97% of Gen Y respondents would take action to rectify their skill deficit.
