Enhancing your "Soft Skills"
*All General Education courses must be completed with a "C-" or better
"Soft skills" are personal attributes that describe an individual's ability to interact with others. Soft skills, also known as people skills, complement hard skills to enhance an individual's relationships, job performance and career prospects. It's often said that hard skills will get you an interview but you need soft skills to get -- and keep -- the job.
