Join the IUP Career and Professional Development Center and IUP Panhellenic on Wednesday, October 24,, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. in the HUB Ohio Room for the workshop, “Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone: Soft Skills and Public Speaking Can Impact Your Success,” presented by Tammy Manko.  

Soft skills such as communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork are critical to one’s success, regardless of their desired industry. Those that can hone in on these skills and demonstrate them effectively will set themselves apart from their peers. On the other hand, public speaking is oftentimes a necessary part of most careers, yet is widely feared. Attending this workshop will help students to understand why these two topics are so crucial to their career success and how they can use them to their advantage.

This event is part of the Career and Professional Development Center’s Career Ready Seminar Series, which aims to provide targeted events to help IUP students gain and understand the necessary skills and competencies to be successful in life after graduation.
