Do you know what EMPLOYERS mean by being ‘work ready’?
We are dedicated to activating growth and accelerating global careers
We understand the challenges of employers and graduates. Competition for jobs and internships is intensifying. Demand for full-time jobs far exceeds the opportunities available. Employers are focused on hiring work ready graduates who ‘hit the ground running’ in helping to achieve organisational growth.
What Employers Want
Economies, sectors and business models are constantly changing and being disrupted, requiring organisations to be agile, innovative and relationship driven.
Most employers, whether in commercial, not-for-profit or government organisations, say they don’t necessarily need you to have job specific experience (though that would be beneficial). They will train you up for the job.
What they really need is for you to come with proven work ready skills and experience, particularly the entrepreneurial, professional, technical, personal skills and mindset that allows you to immediately contribute to the organisation’s journey.
Your Work Readiness
Working online, in international collaborations, and across disciplines, borders and cultures are now the new normal in the work environment.
You need the extra edge that can apply your technical knowledge to producing value for the organisation – for example, skills in innovation, problem solving, teamwork, leadership, digital literacy and cross-cultural competency.
Work readiness skills and mindsets are critical and 100% transferable between jobs wherever you are located.
Complete the My Work Readiness Checklist to find out your work readiness strengths and weaknesses, and what you need to improve to launch, accelerate and achieve your career ambitions.

Your Checklist Assessment
To give you an understanding of your work readiness, the My Work Readiness Checklist consists of 5 sections:
- Your Details
- Career Preparation
- Skills Development
- Work Experience
For simplicity, all questions are equally weighted with scores for each question ranging from 0 (minimum) to 4 (maximum)
Having an overall score of your work readiness based on your responses gives you greater clarity and understanding about the areas for improvement to boost your career confidence and employability and mobility.
