Employability Skills

Course Description:

This is a one-semester course designed to teach students how they can make a difference in the workplace based on their behavior. In addition, students will learn how to effectively address problems that might arise in the workplace.

Central to any employee’s growth is the understanding that he or she is part of a working community that includes employers, employees, and customers or clients. Special responsibilities and commitments come with being employed. Each employee must learn to embrace these responsibilities if he or she is to succeed at work.

On the practical level, employees need to know how to do well on the job and how to keep the job. Early training in building conscientious work habits will stand employees in good stead for the rest of their working lives. It also forges links between their willingness to accept responsibility for their actions and the rewards they get for developing a sense of responsibility.
