Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS), a leading non-profit organization connecting individuals from underserved populations with transformative career opportunities, has created a free online Soft Skills Mastery Class for early-career individuals.
Based on 20 years of research-based workforce development experience, the Soft Skills Mastery Class has been designed to develop capabilities in self-esteem and confidence, lifelong learning and metacognition, personal and professional core values, and literacy in a business culture oriented toward workplace success.
|Northeastern University College of Professional Studies has partnered with WOS to issue a certificate of participation upon completion of the Soft Skills Mastery Class.|
Anthony Amato, Vice President of Business Services at WOS, states that, “The Soft Skills Mastery Class was designed for highly motivated, early-career professionals who would like to make a positive impact on not only their professional success, but also their lives.”
Workforce Opportunity Services created the Soft Skills Mastery Class to empower individuals to move from entry-level positions to long-lasting professional success. This special online class will be 12 hours, 3 hours a day for four consecutive days. This class will consist of 2 hours of live training with an additional 1 hour of individual learning.
Participants will create actionable knowledge to help them develop as individuals, students, and professionals. Throughout the class, we will explore personal management skills needed for the workplace, including how participants’ experience and knowledge can translate into success at work.
