HEQCO report finds that many employers expect experience for entry-level positions

The Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) has released a new 3-part study on entry-level jobs in Canada. Researchers found that less than one-quarter of employers would consider hiring a candidate with no work experience for an entry-level position; employers wanted an average of between one and 2 years of experience. When filling entry-level positions that asked for a PSE credential, close to half of employers said that they didn’t care whether the credential came from a college or a university; about the same amount said they didn’t care which field the candidate had studied. A follow-up survey found that 59% of employers hired candidates with 3 or more years of previous employment for the entry-level positions while a quarter hired candidates with more than 5 years of experience. Among the skills cited as being most valued by employers in the study were the ability to work well with others, oral communication skills, and computer skills. While the study was limited in its scope, the researchers say that the results suggest that PSE graduates do have the right skills for the labour market, but that they also emphasize the need for alignment and collaboration between PSE institutions and employers. HEQCO Summary

Lynnette Van Dyke's insight:

According to this report, “In the fall of 2010, the Center on Education Policy surveyed state officials about their efforts to adopt and implement the Common Core State Standards in reading and math. The survey found that states that have adopted the standards have plans for changing policies and programs, such as developing or adopting new assessments, modifying curriculum materials, and offering professional development for teachers, to ensure that the standards are fully implemented at the classroom level.”
