UPfront Give me ethics – that’s what I want…

Employers now rate ethics higher than creativity in top 10 wishlist of graduate attributes.
This finding from Victoria University of Wellington’s Career Development and Employment service 2003 survey is hardly surprising given all the publicity around corporate shenanigans that’s occurred since they last surveyed employers in 2000.
The current top 10 is headed by strong verbal and interpersonal communication skills, followed by self-motivation, being team player, sound academic achievement, analytical and conceptual skills, strong written communication skills, an adaptable ‘can-do’ attitude, problem-solving skills, energy and enthusiasm – and professional ethics.
Employers also added they were looking for well-rounded individuals who get on well with others, have computer skills and knowledge of central government processes.
