Hard Skills Not Enough For Job Success

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) projects that over 1.5 million students will graduate with a bachelor's degree in 2014. These new potential employees come “preloaded” with the requisite technical skills that their careers require.

Yet, despite this, many find themselves unable to adequately perform in a competitive marketplace due to their lack of interpersonal skills otherwise known as soft skills.

There it is, the thing that colleges still haven’t quite gotten a handle on instilling in their graduates. Unless we as individuals understand how to communicate, cooperate, and coordinate with others, we are at a significant disadvantage—especially in the workplace. According to Mark Murphy (author of Hire for Attitude), 46% of new hires fail in the first 18 months, and of those new hires, 89% fail for reasons associated with attitude.

Do we really need to put so much emphasis on ‘playing nice?’

We're all adults, but we all have different approaches to getting things done, especially due to our diversity in experience, demeanors, age, goals, and cultures, sometimes all on the same team. 77 percent of employers say that soft skills are just as important as hard skills

The Carnegie Hosts "Social Security: When Do I Collect?"

On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 2:30PM, investment representative, Jennifer Camp presents an informationalsocial_security.jpg program designed to address questions about Social Security, such as "How does Social Security fit into my retirement income plan", "When should I start taking benefits" and finally, "What about taxes".  The end-goal will be to provide information that will make better sense of what impact Social Security will have with respect to personal financial goals.

There will be no sales pitch involved in this program. Jennifer Camp is employed by Edward Jones, a Fortune 500 company, which provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada.

The Carnegie is located at 1 LaGrange Street in downtown Newnan on the historic Courthouse Square.  Call to reserve your spot at 770-683-1347.

Real Men Wear Pink

images.jpgNewnan (Oct. 1, 2014) – As part of its commitment to the fight against breast cancer, Piedmont Newnan Hospital has enlisted the help of 10 prominent men in the Coweta County community to help spread awareness about breast cancer, the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. The campaign is designed to increase the number of women who take preventative action in the fight against the disease.

These 10 men have agreed to become the names and faces in the battle against breast cancer, which affects one in eight women in the U.S. They’ll take part in community events such as a “Pink Out” night at Newnan High School on Friday, October 24, all while leading by example by asking the women in their lives to get screened for breast cancer.
