Finding a job as a new grad can be a tough journey, but these schools could give you a leg up over the competition. A new ranking of graduate employability says these 10 Canadian universities are among the world’s best.
The QS Graduate Employability Rankings for 2022 have revealed which universities are producing the most employable graduates based on the workplace skills that students get to learn.
The schools on the list stand out for their “ability to produce graduates with the ‘soft skills’ required for the modern workplace,” the ranking says. They’re considered among the best-placed schools to help you succeed in your post-graduation job hunt.
The universities are given scores out of 100 based on various categories, including graduate employment rate, employer-student connections and employer reputation. The only school to receive a perfect score is the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
