So it’s natural to push your child to acquire the
skills he’ll need to survive in it.
But in addition to technical skills, employers also look for many non-technical abilities.
According to a 1988 study, employers want workers who:
• Have mastered the three Rs — reading, writing and arithmetic.
• Have good “people skills”— know how to be a team player.
• Speak and listen well.
• Think creatively.
• Know how to solve problems.
• Have high self-esteem.
• Have learned how to learn.
• Pursue career and personal development.
