essential work skills

Essential work skills involve the personal aptitude to function according to professional standards in any career setting. While many employers are willing to provide technical training, there is a widespread expectation that applicants are well equipped with essential skills. Across all industry sectors, this capacity is frequently a prerequisite for hire.

For KCC students and young adults, a Workplace Excellence Series/Essential Skills for Workplace Success is offered through Kankakee Community College's Workforce Development Center. This series is sponsored by the Grundy, Livingston & Kankakee Workforce Board.
