It's Hard Work That Counts, Teens Say

Their parents would be proud. The Mortarboard blog in the Guardian (England) reports on a survey in which teens "put hard work and reliability at the top of the list of skills they think they need to get them their dream job.” What’s more, only 15 percent of those surveyed called being creative an asset in vying for jobs, according to the survey commissioned by the United Kingdom’s National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts. In an ironic twist, however, NESTA says today’s employers are actually looking for creative, resourceful employees to advance innovation. Would the results be the same in the U.S.? It's interesting to consider.
