They responded that the newly employed lack the following abilities: work skills (44.8 percent), interpersonal relationships (23.9 percent), and Korean language skills including making documents (18.5 percent). The lack of foreign language ability only comprises 5.5 percent.

In the meantime, the most deficient ability is writing business plans and reports (43.3 percent).
