Massey's Employability Characteristics

It is never too early to give thought to "How am I going to find a job when I leave University?" Massey has developed FIVE Employability Characteristics which we believe that students and graduates need. We believe that it is critical that you work towards developing, and strengthening, these Employability Characteristics whilst at university.
