Key attributes employers seek

Are good grades the main thing that employers look for?
When surveyed, graduate employers rated interpersonal and communication skills as the top priority when selecting students for vacation or graduate positions. Academic grades were fourth on the list of attributes that employers selected on. Relevant work experience and your capacity to demonstrate that you operated effectively in the workplace and have developed personal qualities and skills through a range of extracurricular activities or interests will be the key attributes that employers will seek. The person who has been able to balance all of these activities successfully is likely to attract the greatest level of interest from employers.
