Abstract
This study analyzes the barriers that university graduates are facing in finding appropriate work post-graduation and investigates ways that universities can assist their students in transitioning into the labour market. An examination of current statistics and literature provide this study with up-to-date data on millennial employability. The study analyzes the policies used at Ontario universities with top employment rates and combines this with expert interviews of employment service professionals. Results indicate that students are lacking a combination of comprehensive labour market information, as well as transferable skills and experience. The study recommends a reform to current work experience programs at universities, as well as increased access to labour market information.
