Written by Linda Peacock-Landrum, Director of Career Services

A recent article appeared in Insight, a business publication for the New North region in Wisconsin.  Employers in the New North region were asked to comment on what recent college graduates needed to know in order to be successful making the transition from college to the professional work world.  According to the author, Amy Spreeman, many of the employers interviewed focused on soft skills.    In addition it is important for a candidate to be well-rounded with leadership experience and solid front-line business experience in customer service, food service, etc.  The article is worth a detailed read for any current college student, recent college graduate as well as recent high school graduate.  When employers speak and share a perspective, college students and college graduates should consider listening.  The complete article can be viewed here:
