Can do attitude: A positive attitude, readiness to work hard and contribute to the company. A drive to achieve results.
Problem solving: Analyzing facts and situations and applying creative thinking to develop appropriate solutions.
Communication: Ability to communicate clearly and concisely in writing and orally.
Numerical ability: Ability to work with numbers in practical applications and real life settings.
Computer skills: Mid level familiarity with word processing, spreadsheets and file management.
Business intelligence and customer awareness: Basic understanding of the key drivers for business success and the importance of customer satisfaction and building customer loyalty.
Personal traits: An innovative mind set, creativity, collaboration and risk taking.
One common thread that has emerged in the CDC’s deep dive into industry needs, student capabilities and employability in the current job environment, is the need to ensure that all graduates emerging from HITAM are business ready in multiple environments, possessing the required skill, creativity and above all the willingness and ability to contribute immediately to their prospective employers.
Therefore, CDC has given the highest priority and focus for development of graduate employ ability in its agenda
