The framework for our study is the transition between university and the workplace. It has two main purposes: firstly, to assess the Cooperation and Networking skill amongst students about to graduate from university, and secondly, to find out whether they are aware of its importance. For this analysis, a 360° skills assessment process was carried out with 434 students from two countries (Spain and Mexico). The results show that women from both universities (Spain and Mexico), and Mexican students in general (male and female) are better at this skill. Overall results for the group as a whole show poor performance which must be improved.
