Making lists of soft skills and offering sessions to students may be the first step to getting graduate students to think about what they can offer future employers. Nicolas (2008) wrote that, “without an overall framework and without a link to the research project,” we are wasting time and creating superficial knowledge in our graduate students. The Statement of the UK Research Councils' Training Requirements for Research Students provided an excellent framework to layout the expectations we have of doctoral students’ research skills in their pursuit of an academic career, and to superimpose the requirements non-academic employers have for our graduate students.
