On Thursday, February 28th, Pulaski County High School hosted their first annual "Soft Skill Training". The training was open to all seniors as they prepare for the transition to the workforce. The workshops taught during the training were
1- Cell Phone Etiquette and Social Media
2-Introductions and Personal Space
3-Resume Dos and Dont's
4-Counting Money and Giving Back Correct Change
5-Dress Code
6-Complaint Management and Customer Service
7-Business Ethics
The workshops were a result of a joint partnership with Pulaski County High School and several community leaders work on the local Advisory Council. Local business partners that helped with the presentations included Gatormade Trailors, Kentucky Farm Bureau, Somerset Community College, BB and T Bank and Pierce Farms. Special thanks goes out to Kroger Super Center for their generous donation of mannequins, outfits and helping with dress code. Also, special thanks to Mellow Mushroom for providing a great lunch and the local Chamber of Commerce (Bobby Clue) for assistance.
Overall, the workshops allowed students to gain valuable insights on tips to both gaining and keeping a job. Pulaski County High School seniors all walked out with a new sense of confidence, enthusiasm, knowledge and a certificate that verified that they were trained in "Soft Skills". All of this would not have been possible without the administration and custodial staff of Pulaski County High School with special assistance from Kristy Snead, Holly Bowers and the CTE Department.
