Career readiness is an essential aspect of modern education, and students must have the necessary skills to thrive in the ever-changing workplace. With the rise of automation, there is a growing demand for individuals with soft skills that cannot be replicated by machines. Fortunately, there are programs such as Career Edge, which provides award-winning soft skills workshops for college students. These workshops cover critical thinking and problem-solving, business communications, and business etiquette and workplace behaviors, ensuring that students are better prepared for their careers. Additionally, the Financial Literacy Project offers workshops for 7th and 8th graders in the Irvine Unified School District, including an investment exercise that allows students to review the results of a four-week project. Meanwhile, the Ethics Forum provides high school students with the opportunity to engage in discussions around ethical issues and culminates in a presentation to parents, teachers, and guests, thus providing students with a holistic education that prepares them for the world beyond the classroom.
may get you the interview, but you need soft skills to get and keep the job.
