Employers expect to hire competent workers trained in a discipline who also demonstrate “soft skills.” These skills include basic concepts of time and weather, social skills for effective communication, problem-solving, critical thinking, basic literacy skills, self-care, wellness and health maintenance, and independent living skills. Furthermore, today’s employees need financial literacy skills (monthly budgeting, bill payment, fraud prevention) related to managing an independent residence and skills to effectively use different methods of transportation. There are opportunities for college faculty and academic advisors to partner with employers and community agencies and plan remediation of soft skills important to job success. Content will include examples of soft skill training activities and recommended community resources.
