Indian economy is facing the surplus of labour supply in comparison to the demand in the labour market. Only those who are found to be most suitable for the particular job are selected. The hiring decision of employers is affected by the various factors. In order to prepare the fresh graduates to face the real working environment efficiently, it is very important to identify such factors, which are affecting the employers’ hiring decision and the order of preference of such factors also needs to be highlighted. The present study aims to ascertain the order of preference given to such factors. Preference order is to be based upon the rankings assigned to the various factors by the employers. The study is based on the primary data collected with the help of a well-structured questionnaire administered to 100 employers of National Capital Region. The ranking of factors is calculated based on Garrett Value and Garrett Comparison Ranking Table. The study found that “performance in interview”, “resume”, and “internship experience” are the top three factors based on ratings provided by the employers, which are most important while taking the hiring decision about any of the fresh graduates entering the organization.
