Leadership: the skill employers are looking for in college graduates.

Sep 13, 2017 by Arthur Montejano

The Center for Leadership can help you develop the skills necessary to stand out in today’s job marketplace. An article published by Gallup laid out the facts: employers are looking for graduates who have leadership skills. Here are some of the benefits of participating in our programs:

  • FREE professional leadership development through hands-on learning.
  • Network with like-minded students who will be tomorrow’s leaders.
  • All participants receive badges to display on their LinkedIn profiles to let employers know which skills they have developed.

Our Fall 2017 programs are listed below. We have something for everyone. Are you beginning your leadership journey? Try the Emerging Leaders Retreat. Are you a graduate student? We developed a Leadership Institute just for you. Do you want to develop a specific leadership skill in 60 minutes or less? Leadership On Demand can help you do that – no prior registration needed.

You can develop into the leader that employers are looking for. The first step? Showing up.
