Workplace & Internship Readiness Course

Preparing students before they enter the workplace

A robust local economy relies on a skilled workforce equipped with the necessary knowledge and competencies. The American skills gap is real. Today’s employers are looking for candidates who possess essential employability and soft skills required to be effective in the workplace. They seek employees with a level of professionalism, effective communication and decision-making skills, self-awareness, and the ability to work with a team. It is important for students to understand what is required in the real world and feel prepared before entering a work environment.
