High school and college graduates are not prepared to enter the workforce. Why? Because they have not been taught or been able to develop soft skills - the intangible but impactful abilities that allow an individual to execute effectively in today's collaborative and distributed workplace.
Participants will learn:
--> A framework that will clearly connect the skills students learn at school with what skills they'll need for the job
--> How important "attitude" is to securing and succeeding in the workplace and how students can demonstrate a "can-do" attitude to prospective employers during networking and interviews
--> What the trends "skills not school" really means for today's graduates
PLEASE NOTE: No CEUs will be given for this presentation.
