"Educators, employers and policy-makers are finding that for young people to succeed they need an educational foundation which, in addition to technical skills, includes life and employability skills as a way to prepare them to be motivated and confident decision makers, who can overcome adversity and realize their potential."

 

Totally agree - before the CV and the interview skills training must come the personal skills and strategies related to self management and employability!

... and unequal access to opportunity keep a sustainable career out of reach of many.
Dr Heather Carpenter's insight:

Extract:'A sustainable career is dynamic and flexible; it features continuous learning, periodic renewal, the security that comes from employability, and a harmonious fit with your skills, interests, and values. The keys to crafting a sustainable career are knowing yourself — what interests you, what you do best and not so well, what energizes you — and being acutely attuned to the fields and companies you're interested in, so that you can identify places where you can add value. .... A sustainable career is built upon the ability to show that you can fill a need that someone is willing to pay for."

Dr Heather Carpenter's insight:

"  (e.g., self-management, team working, business awareness, and problem-solving) as to degree results, and hence students need more than just their academic achievement to gain a foothold in the graduate labour market. Although it diverts time from study at a potential cost to academic achievement, term-time employment may be a useful way to demonstrate these employability skills to prospective employers."

 

The report suggests part time work signals important attributes such as initiative, motivation,  as well as heightened 'soft skills.'

ManpowerGroup | Talent Shortage 2013 | Career Management | Scoop.it
Changing demographics, technological evolution and a world prone to political, economic and social shocks have created a global environment in which talent shortages are the rule rather than the exception.
Dr Heather Carpenter's insight:

This report and the research study are worth looking at:.

According to the 2013 survey results—and for the second consecutive year—the most acute talent shortages are reported in Japan (85%) and Brazil (68%). (Figure 2) The problem is widespread in Asia Pacific, with more than half the employers surveyed in India (61%), Hong Kong (57%) and New Zealand (51%) saying that talent shortages prevent them from hiring people with needed skills.
