College Curriculum Competencies and Skills Former Students Found Essential to Their Careers
Zekeri, Andrew A.
College Student Journal, v38 n3 p412 Sep 2004
In this paper, the author examines college curriculum competencies and skills acquired in college education that former students report as most essential to improve their career experiences. Multivariate analysis indicates that despite the technological changes occurring in places of work, skills in oral communication, written communication, public speaking, motivating and managing others, and effective group leadership are most essential for career improvement. Other skills former students found essential for career development are skill in finance and cost management, negotiating employees/employer differences, and handling consumer/customer relations.
