Being Work Ready: A Guide to what Employers Want

Today many employers are looking for potential employees to have more than a qualification – they want them to be ‘work ready’.
The Business Council of Australia developed Being Work Ready: A Guide to What Employers Want to assist senior high school students and people helping them (family, teachers and career counsellors), to better understand what ‘work readiness’ means from a business perspective.
The guide which is outlined through the videos below, outlines the minimum expectations a business has of someone’s work readiness when they apply for a job. These expectations are classified as values, behaviours and skills.
It also summarises the views of business about the responsibilities different groups – business, education system, family, government or individuals – have for developing work readiness.


The Business Council of Australia have also put together a booklet, which further expands on what employers want 

The Australian Business Chamber have a number of tips on job hunting, resume & cover letters and interview preparations, and a Jobs Board to find apprenticeships and traineeships
