In their 2022 Job Outlook Report2, NACE identifies the importance of eight critical competencies that define career readiness alongside the proficiency level current graduates have in the skill set.

While most grads seem to be proficient in recent technologies, many skills that define professional career readiness and rated with importance levels as high as 98% were deemed lacking by employers by as much as 44%. Skills such as critical thinking, communication, teamwork, and professionalism were found to be deficient in more than 42% of current graduates.

These soft skills, as well as the others on their competency list, are areas that Bay Path is proud to reinforce throughout each of our online BS in Business degree programs, making you a stand-out candidate for the role you want.
