"Soft skills" are back, and they're anything but soft. Instead, they're the skills that power entire careers regardless of a student's chosen pathway, industry sector, or geography. A recent analysis by America Succeeds and Emsi Burning Glass showed that 7 of the top 10 most requested skills in job postings are what they've termed "durable skills" and that these skills are requested nearly four times as often as the top five hard or technical skills. As automation increases its reach, these skills are becoming the currency of success in the future workforce. So, how do we bring durable skills training front and center in education? Join Stephanie Short, Vice President of Partnerships for America Succeeds, Summer Discovery, and Summer Institute for the Gifted (SIG) for a webinar to learn more about these skills and how summer programs can help students harness these important traits.
