Everyone at ITA is on your team. Technical skills may help you achieve your objective, but your soft skills are the means to set you on the right track in a career. Your work ethic, attitude, communication skills, emotional intelligence and other personal attributes are the “soft skills” that are crucial for career success.
Career Services work hand-in-hand with instructors to support you right from the beginning of your program. Together, we integrate the soft skills required for workplace success right into the daily curriculum. Why? 75% of employers believe soft skills are just as important as, if not more important than, technical knowledge.
Here are four key attributes employers highlight:
Effective Communication: the ability to convey thoughts calmly and clearly in all settings
Teamwork: the ability to work well with others
Time Management: the ability to plan ahead, work efficiently, and stay organized
Problem-solving: the ability to troubleshoot, adapt to changes, and make important decisions
Throughout your program, the ITA team will work with you to develop the skills you need to find the right opportunities for pursuing a new career. We explain and directly provide guidance to our students in the preparation and job search process, which include:
Searching and Pinpointing Employment Opportunities
Creating an Effective Resume and Cover Letter
