Despite the changes which come into our lives and with gratitude in our hearts, may we fill our days-as much as we can-with those things which matter most. May we cherish those we hold dear and express our love to them in word and in deed.”

 Presentation on Soft skills

Sharing and working together

According to a research conducted in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Spain, Mexico and Peru by Universia, Peruvian graduates are not so satisfied with the level obtained when culminating their university majors. Satisfaction percentage of Peruvian graduates is 59% compared to over 70% obtained by Colombia and Argentina.The main reason for this dissatisfaction is the difficulty graduates face to get a job immediately after graduating. Only 33% could get a job that relates to what they majored in while the rest had to take whatever job available.


However, the percentage of people satisfied with their secondary school learning is higher: 68% students, 62% teachers believe secondary school was good, even if university professors disagree. They claim that after finishing secondary school students are incapable of doing analysis and synthesis, do not master a second language and have poor time management, all of them important skills for a professional. The strengths these students show are interpersonal skills and mastery of the IT tools, their weaknesses are the lack of linguistic competences such as oral and written communication.

So what kind of knowledge, skills and attitudes should a remarkable professional display? Human Resources experts say that the core skills are not enough, professionals need to develop competences that provide them with adaptability, ability to learn and willingness to improve (soft skills).
