Technical skills & Office Street Smarts.
Success in the workplace after graduation is about more than having field-specific technical skills, crafting budgets, or developing slide presentations. It is also, to a large extent, about effectively working with others. Employers are looking for graduates with "Office Street Smarts," the ability to get along with a variety of office personalities and stakeholders. Office Street Smarts include being able to make a persuasive argument, write to cause action or make a request, communicate with supervisors and customers, collaborate with people from diverse backgrounds, and work effectively on teams.
In a Learn & Earn Job, students will develop both technical skills and Office Street Smarts that are transferable to jobs after graduation.
