Transcript of Writer's Workshop: Soft Skills

SOFT SKILLS **Same Process as prior Writer's Workshop** Write Think Connect Read 1. You will be presented with quick facts
2. You should take notes as you go
3. Complete your pre-writes as you go "Having hard skills gets you hired; lacking soft skills gets you fired."
unkown author No that's not Mr. Boettler It's going to ask you to..... Some students think, "All I need for success at work is the special knowledge of my chosen career." All that nurses need, they believe, are good nursing skills. All that accountants need are good accounting skills. All that lawyers need are good legal skills. These skills are called hard skills, the knowledge needed to perform a particular job. Hard skills include knowing where to insert an intravenous feeding tube, how to write an effective business plan, and what the current inheritance laws are. These are the skills you'll be taught in courses in your major field of study. They are essential to qualify for a job. Without them you won't even get an interview. Career success (or lack of it) affects nearly every part of your life: family, income, self- esteem, who you associate with, where you live, your level of happiness, what you learn, your energy level, your health, and maybe even the length of your life.
