The understanding of Soft Skills is the key to job retention! 

Soft skills are the set of skills that a person should possess in order to face life’s daily challenges successfully and to positively adapt to them. Out of the 8 soft skills that all professional individuals should acquire, effective communication is most imperative and is encompassed within each universal soft skill which allows us to coexist with society and one’s self. Soft skills are the behavioral and personal characteristics that people demonstrate unconsciously and routinely. Soft skills are learned through social interaction and from day-to-day situations. To enhance one’s soft skills, one must analyze them self first, and then the ones around them. Having a clear understanding of various personality types in the workplace will yield positive professional interaction . Self-analysis being the core component of soft skills and effective communication being the workable aspect, one can demonstrate professional-interpersonal skills in every social-setting.

However after the first speaker Dr. David Banks, Phd., career development, I was so excited about what or who was to come with the next session. I learned how to be a professional with insight on how to best communicate with, customers, co-workers, and management. As the course goes on all the training and skills you are gaining prepares you for an interview as well as other professional engagements. I have received a job offer and with all the skill that I now have, I know it is up to me to achieve it.
