Employer Perspectives on International Education and Recruitment

VU International News and Reviews No. 07 June 3 2013

June 2013

As reporter earlier in this Newsletter, the QS Employer survey shows that there is strong recognition of the benefits of globally educated employees in the employment marketplace. Intercultural communication skills and language skills are particularly important to today’s graduate employers. In a new article in the Handbook Internationalisation of Higher education, Davina Potts and John Molony provide an overview of the results of the study on the role of international education in the recruitment process. It also discusses the implications of these results for policy makers, institutions and practitioners and suggest some ways that international educators can support students in achieving positive employment outcomes.
