Join United Way’s Young Leaders United group for an educational and fun lunch & learn session.
As Young Leaders in our community, it’s important that we continue to build leadership and professional skills while also taking time to support our personal wellbeing and the health of our communities.
These sessions will be most appropriate for those ages 18-35, and are free to attend.
All companies are different, but many of us have some of the same requirements of a candidate when we interview. Ability to perform essential functions and experience play a key factor in who we hire, but did you know that your soft skills ability can play an even bigger part? Soft skills are the personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people. Some examples are communication, problem-solving, creativity, adaptability, and work ethic. So, do you have the right soft skills for the job? During the presentation we will talk about the high demand of various soft skills, how you can best portray your soft skills and how you can sharpen the soft skills you may already have. Because…. We want you AND your soft skills!
