The world of work is changing at an ever increasing rate.
There are a few things you need to know to compete in the 21st Century Workforce.
Start with the Basics
An increasing percentage of employers state that individuals entering the workforce with a high school diploma are skills deficient in reading, writing and math. Colleges report that a significant percentage of incoming freshman are basic skills deficient and in need of remediation to prepare for the rigor of college curriculum.
If you are experiencing trouble with reading, writing or math – help is available! Talk to your parents, teachers or guidance counselor. Whatever you do – don’t wait! The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get back on track.
Have a Strong Work Ethic
Work ethic is the set of behaviors and attitudes that you demonstrate at work and apply to your job! Not something you were “born with” this is a learned set of behaviors and experiences. But we can help you develop your work ethic by understanding how an employer may be viewing you.
Understanding and embracing differences in people puts you ahead of the curve when it comes to adapting to your workplace. Many employers place high value on this skill as you enter the workforce.
Commit to Lifelong Learning
Finishing school isn’t enough to compete in the emerging global workforce. Learning doesn’t end once you finish school and get that job you’ve been waiting for — in fact, its just begun. For all of us, learning is lifelong.
Taking more personal responsibility for your career development plan puts you in control of your career path opportunities. There are many options for you, and a world of youth-focused Resources. Some of them are listed in this area of this website. Others can be explored at our Career Centers. You are welcome anytime, which includes the option to use some of our resources in your career exploration or job search.
