based on a Business-Uncorked 2024 Benchmark Study

"First impressions are everything, and if you come across as someone who is completely inexperienced you will be treated that way. Being a little polished can go a long way toward gaining someone's respect."

 

"I believe taking a soft skills class will help most students achieve what they really want to do in life.  Often times people come with the educational background for the job they have gotten but lack the social/emotional soft skills."

"I think soft skills are incredibly important for young professionals to develop early in order to effectively navigate the corporate world and advance in their careers. These skills are important at every level.
