Abstract: Determining what skills employers of new IS graduates desire is important in guiding IS educators in designing curriculum and in advising students. This study reports the results of a pilot study which attempts to gain insight into the previously mentioned question. The findings indicate that basic technical skills, such as systems analysis and design, and database concepts, and non-technical skills, such as teamwork and communications skills, are more important than specific technical skills.
