Critical Employability Skills
Soft Skills are non-technical, critical employability skills needed in the workplace. Employers say that soft skills are frequently a deciding factor in the hiring process. Employers want soft skills in potential employees, and current employees need these skills for promotion and advancement. Some people think of soft skills as interpersonal skills, but soft skills are truly much more.
WORKS and Wayne Community College offer soft skills training for unemployed workers in Wayne and surrounding counties. Participants in the class are evaluated on teamwork, appearance, organization, attendance, productivity, communication, cooperation, and various other skills. Completers leave with a certificate, a finished resume, an application tool and a full soft skills evaluation.
The goal of the training is to raise awareness of what employers want in employees and to give participants tools they can use to develop their soft skills. This student-centered training is hands-on and interactive and builds individuals’ skills through coaching, team-building and real world scenarios. On the final day of class, students practice what they’ve learned in mock interviews with local HR professionals.
