CTAE Students learn about skills needed for employment
On Februay 1, SkillsUSA members provided an activity that would educate
CTAE ninth and tenth graders on the needed essential soft skills necessary to
enter the workforce. The title of
the activity was called, JOB READY! EXPECTATIONS NOW. Most
of these students will soon gain
employment and enter into the work based learning program at the school. SkillsUSA members wanted to make sure that
they are prepared not only to get a job but to keep a job. Members had several business and industry
representatives meet with the ninth and tenth graders to discuss soft skills
that are needed for employment.
Business and industry
representatives present included: Ms.
Quisha Matthews, State Farm, Ms. April Harris, Marble Slab; Ms. Keisha
Doolittle, Georgia Department of Revenue; Ms. Alicia Harris, MARTA; and Bobby
Light, 2014 Work Based Learning Graduate.
We are thankful that they were present to give insight to the 9th
and 10ths on soft skills need.
SkillsUSA member, Sergio Garcia, thanked Ms. Alicia Harris and stated, “I am sure that the students learned something”. Carlos Flores, agreed and stated, ”because I learned something too. You have to work as a team player even if you hate the job”. We want the business and industry people to come back and be a part of the Career Day Fair in March.
