Employment Success

The nature of work has changed and addressing the widening gap between the skills empoyers’ need and the capabilities of new workers is vital to the future.

Companies are asking for young adults who have applied skills in communication, leadership, teamwork, and problem solving. Extension’s Knowledge Economy initiative has identified “Employment Success” as an area of focus because of the changing nature of the 21st century workplace.
