Closing the Employer Gap on Global Skills Gained through Mobility

International mobility for students is expected to build the employability skills deemed vital for success in the workforce. To build a concrete evidence base to prove that a study abroad experience does help students get jobs, the employer voice needs to be included. This project will do a national scan of key employers, to gain valuable information about what skills they are looking for an employee, whether they believe these competencies can be gained through mobility and how a student can best articulate their international experiences when applying for a position.
