About the Webconference

Employers consistently report that the most important skills for employees to have are the “soft” ones: written and verbal communication, teamwork, and problem solving. We know that students can and are developing these skills through co-curricular involvement, but many students don’t access these opportunities, and those that do often struggle to articulate the value of their experiences to prospective employers.

The final segment of this series looks at strategies for reframing the co-curricular experience, helping students better take advantage of all student affairs division offerings and ensuring they can articulate the value of their involvement in the job search.

Presenter: Liz Brown
