Abstract     
The point of departure of this study was a lack of information on the employers’ perspective on what makes graduates employable. The study uses an innovative approach to look at employers’ preferences for graduates, namely by simulating the selection process with hypothetical candidates. The responses from more than 900 employers in nine different European countries were complemented with in-depth interviews with employers as well as focus groups of relevant stakeholders in 12 European countries. The study provides insight into:„„ the major trends on the labour market for higher education ({HE)} graduates and how these trends impact the skills that {HE} graduates are supposed to have;„„ the key characteristics that employers look at when they recruit {HE} graduates; the skills that graduates should possess in order to be employable;„„ how higher education institutions ({HEIs)} can best enable students to develop employable profiles; and„„ the dilemmas that {HEIs} face when improving employability., The point of departure of this study was a lack of information on the employers’ perspective on what makes graduates employable.
