College and Career Success Strategies

High school students

A highly-interactive session that takes a positive approach to helping students understand the importance of developing and practicing essential “soft” career skills now and in college.

They will leave with practical steps that they can take right away to make them better students and more attractive candidates for employers.

College and Career Success Strategies

High school parents

What is the best major to take in college? Is a college degree worth the investment? Is my child going to be saddled with crushing student loan debt?

This interactive program engages parents with an unvarnished analysis of the situation and practical guidelines to help their children prepare for college and career.

Recent graduates

This positive and upbeat presentation helps new employees understand the attitudes and behaviors that will help make them more valuable to their companies.

Hard Truths about Soft Skills

College faculty and administrators

This interactive program explores the root causes for this problem, and what colleges can reasonably do with existing resources to address the problem.

Hard Truths about Soft Skills
