Career Awareness Initiative

The Yough School District is kicking off the school year with it's Career Awareness Initiative.  Part of the initiative is to bring awareness to the top Soft Skills employers look for in their employees.  What better way to prepare the future work force by introducing & reinforcing Soft Skills while they're in school?

The Soft Skill for the Month of November: Teamwork

Teamwork is the process of working collaboratively with a group of people in order to achieve a goal and is often a crucial part of any business or organization, as it is often necessary to work well together.
