Description

Pearson FlexText...setting you up for success in school and at work

Regardless of the course you’re taking -- whether you are in a Business, Practical Nursing, ECE, or Police Foundations program -- you want to leave with skills that can help you get the job you want. Some of these skills will be specific to your course of study or major. These are basic skills your employers will want you to have. An accountant, for example, will be expected to know how to read a balance sheet and use Microsoft Excel. But there are other skills essential to your success in the workplace that might not seem so obvious but are important enough that the many governments call them “Essential” Employability Skills. The Conference Board of Canada goes even further, calling them “the skills you need to enter, stay in, and progress in the world of work -- whether you work on your own or as a part of a team.”
