Overview

Search committees aren’t just reviewing resumes to determine a candidate’s qualifications, they are also looking to see if a candidate will fit within their culture. A recent LinkedIn study (https://tinyurl.com/yygnnem2) of two million members’ profiles determined which soft skills are most in demand. They found that the top skills employers look for from ideal candidates include communication, organization, team work, social skills, adaptability, and creativity. Luckily, these skills are among the many strengths professionals bring to the campus activities field each year. This webinar will highlight several approaches to helping your students translate their campus activities duties into a positive job search experience.
