If you missed it, I had an informative interview with the founder of Hire Cause, David Dvorkin, on the 4 professional skills that employers recently ranked as most desirable in employees. But really, I see them as skills everyone should be working on developing. Here’s a video of the interview if you want to check it out.
He discussed why these skills cannot be learned in any classroom and why managers are too busy to teach these skills in any internship. We also discuss why these skills are even more important if your children dream to maybe work for themselves one day.
Lastly, we discuss how the essential key to developing these professional skills is to be surrounded by a supportive community of peers and mentors who are on the same journey. When your children are working alongside others who want to see them succeed and make a difference in their community at the highest level, this is where the magic happens in helping them pursue their dreams.
If your teens want to apply to Hire Cause, just a reminder that the deadline for applications is next Friday, 12/7. If your children are interested in a fun way to develop the professional skills they need while positively impacting others in their community, then I hope they’ll consider Hire Cause.
