Today’s young professionals must be creative thinkers, driven self-starters and possess the social skills needed to succeed in a collaborative work environment. Many first-time employees enter the workforce without the ability to self-manage, work in a team and lead others. Effective employees must not only possess the necessary business acumen, but also the strength of character and the personal and social skills to deal with complex problems presented in the business environment.
