Sell soft skills
South Carolina aims to remind parents of the crucial lessons learned and how important first jobs are for children.
The Lieutenant Governor. Pamela Evette work with the SC Ministry of Employment and Manpower to create a public service announcement on “soft skills” that employers say many job seekers lack.
“Soft skills help a person’s professional skills shine,” according to DEW.
Children of working age who do not acquire work experience during their studies do not acquire skills that differ from practical experience or training in a specific job. DEW said these so-called job skills are essential. They include communication, digital literacy, problem solving, teamwork, attendance and following the rules.
“People need to have the experience of a basic part-time job as a young person to help them acquire these important skills that form the basis of a successful career throughout their lives, regardless of the field. that they pursue, ”said Evette.
But parents of working-age children still in school mistakenly think employers aren’t flexible when it comes to hours, and they focus on money rather than the important skills their children learn when they first start. use.
DEW said it developed the Parents PSA to dispel the misconception and remind them that those early jobs give their kids something more than a few dollars.
Many employers have flexible hours and have positions open for students from college through college, Evette said. While employers typically pay around the state’s minimum wage of $ 7.25 an hour, many employers are paying higher wages as part of a national effort to raise the minimum wage to $ 15 per hour. time.
More important than the money they get, Dan Ellzey, Executive Director of DEW, said: “As a young person who works for a company and is responsible to someone outside of the family, he is responsible for managing his time, his appearance and his communication. The skills they learn on the job are invaluable, and by learning them at a young age, during their studies, they will be better prepared for a future job and be successful.
SC Works, DEW’s primary partner, has created a webpage where parents can view the PSA and learn more about sharing with their children while guiding them. Resources can help them find local options for a first job.
Additionally, through SC Works, students, existing workers, and businesses can also register for a free statewide online general skills program called South Carolina Job Ready U conceived by Clemson University‘s Workforce Development Center. It includes 11 modules on topics ranging from reading comprehension to work ethics.
