Jackson, Denise. 2014. “Testing a model of undergraduate competence in employability skills and its implications for stakeholders.” Journal of Education and Work 27 (2): 220-242. DOI: 10.1080/13639080.2012.718750 The author discussed on the topic of improving employability skills for student who are graduating from higher educations in this research. The research shows that employability skills are crucial factors in the workforce, moreover, these skills desired by particular industries were not met by recent graduates. A quantitative approach was used for this research by analyzing an existing data of 1008 out of 1232 students studying in various courses under the umbrella of business and law participated through completing an internet survey. A series of analysising techniques were carried out to analyze information gathered. There are a number of factors that have an effect on employability. Examples of such factors are demographics, gender, working experience and level of education. The author also discussed the stakeholder’s responsibility regarding the development of employability skills needed in industries. 80% participation rate of the students which include all factors can be regarded as a strong point. The fact that skills outcome cannot be gauged and the research used self-assessed ratings to collect required information are the main weaknesses of the research. Nonetheless, this research helps in the effort of developing employability, in which skills play a crucial role. Additional research is also required so that the limitations can be addressed.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
