VERIFICATION OF EMPLOYABLE SKILLS
Interpersonal skills are a necessary and beneficial part of the working
world. The ability to work with others successfully is very important in most
careers. While playing on my High School Freshmen Soccer Team,
I have been a witness to the necessity of being able to work with my fellow peers.
If we did not work well together we would not have had a winning season. As well
as playing soccer, I played saxophone in my eighth grade band. We all had to work
together to be able to perform efficiently in the many concerts we consummated.
Coming in after school for practices and smaller practices during the school day
all helped us to unite and play music. This skill will enable me to work with other
people, no matter what my personal feelings for them may be.
Being able to use technology will be a profound advantage when I begin
working. Many jobs now, and soon will, require proficiency in the use of a
computer. Computers help by doing many jobs that were once thought to be
impossible. Computers have brought on major advancements that have led to more
cost efficient, reliable businesses and everyday items. My computer has many uses
in my life. I research numerous topics on the Internet and type reports as well.
With my computer, I can be in touch with people around the world. I can learn
many things from the people I meet and the places I go. This is why it is vital
for everyone to be able to have this experience. The educational potential of
the computer should not be taken for granted, but instead used to its fullest.
