Abstract: The objective of this study is to explore company perceptions of graduate student employability. This study is novel, as research focused on employability, is theoretic, remains dedicated to discovering employability of undergraduates and largely neglects to determine company perceptions of factors that increase employability of graduate. The survey measured the employers' satisfaction as well as their perspectives on the importance of attributes that are required from graduates at the workplace. This research found three concepts of employability skills which include soft skills, hard skills and personal attributes from the literature. Also, from the survey, this research found a framework which includes soft skills, hard skills and personal attribute skills which were later on merged to form the framework of employability skills. The discussions of findings were presented according to the research questions. The objective of this study is to determine the relationship between design graduates’ skills (soft skills, hard skills and personal attributes) and employers’ satisfaction
