Skills All Students Need To Be Successful

The jobs market changes in every few years and the educational changes flow with it. However, there are few essential skills that every student (graduate and job candidate) needs to have to give him the best chance at landing a job.Below we have top 10 skills that students need to succeed:

Adaptive Thinking

The ability to adapt to change and a positive attitude about the change, go a long way towards growing a successful career. Employers need workers who can adapt to industry shifts and keep the company running.


Effective communication is about openly and honestly sharing information in a way that creates mutual understanding between all parties involved about the other’s thoughts, intentions and ideas, whether they agree or not.

Collaboration Skills

Future employers will need to quickly adapt to a culture of collaboration. They will need to collaborate with others within and outside the organisation, often using a number of new technologies.

Critical Thinking And Problem Solving Skills

Decision making and problem solving is another skill that is high in demand. The ability to identify complex problems and review related information in order to develop and implement solutions, can distinguish one employee from another. In a rapidly changing world, employers need employees who can solve problems, provide ideas and help improve the organisation.


This includes the ability for employers to independently plan, organise, create and execute rather than wait for someone to do this for them.

Inquiry Skills

The ability to ask great questions, however, is a critical skill that is desperately needed in a culture which requires constant innovations. If the thought of asking makes you break, try practicing in non-work related contexts.

Technology Skills

It goes without saying that this generation of students is the most tech savvy ever. Be sure and utilise all the tech you can. While the basics like Microsoft Office are required just about everywhere, having a knowledge of computer security, HTML, and other tech practices can help you stand out.

Creativity And Innovation

This skill correlates the ability to ask good questions and the ability to solve problems. Employers will be looking for employees with more and more creative and innovative solutions to the existing issues.

Soft Skills

Soft skills are key to building relationships, gaining visibility, and creating more opportunities for advancement. These skills are not specific to one career but are generic across all employment sectors.

Empathy And Perspective

Although this skill has always been important, it seems to be another one that is slowly disappearing. It is the ability for our students to put themselves in someone else’s shoes, to understand their feelings, and to help solve their problems.
