Since 1963 the Fort Zumwalt School District has provided students the opportunity for hands-on training in our woods and metals shops. Things have changed quite a bit since then, in the workplace and in our classrooms. Tune in as we talk with Pat Brown, Andy McHaffie, and Erin Williams about the opportunities for our students in Industrial Technology and Engineering and other Career Technical Education courses.

RESOURCES and LINKS from this episode

Career readiness goes beyond the technical skills that help our students earn Industry Recognized Credentials. In today’s job market one area employers say applicants are lacking is in the area of “soft skills.” While the list of soft skills is wide ranging, some examples include things like being on time, dressing appropriately for the job, being collaborative, having strong oral and written language skills and being able to work across cultures.
