Think about these statistical figures and research findings.
"Four out of 10 fresh graduates and young jobseekers were not hired because they lacked 'soft' competencies - critical thinking, initiative, and effective communication skills" (People Management Association of the Philippines, 2010).
"Among the unemployed, more than 3 out of 10-or 35 percent-were college graduates or had earned some level of tertiary education" (Labor Force Survey, 2013).
"The main cause of the "educated" unemployed problem is the proliferation of low-quality & irrelevant academic programs. Hence, a huge knowledge and skills gap exists between what our graduates possess & what employers need" (Sen. Edgardo Angara, Mar. 15, 2014 Manila Bulletin).
Thus the question is, "Do you have what it takes to land a satisfying job and keep a progressive career?" Confluent Learning's "ASCEND" will help enhance one's knowledge, skills, and effectiveness to increase one's personal & professional growth opportunities.
