The Management and Strategy Institute is proud to support individuals who may be displaced due to company downsizing, layoffs, or other economic conditions. Our programs are designed to compliment someone’s past work experience and education. For example, our Project Management Essentials certification program ensures you have a general understanding of project management skills. Most corporate jobs now require employees to have an understanding of how to run and manage projects effectively. Adding this skill to your background and resumé lets employers know you’re familiar with best practices.
Other skills, often considered “Soft skills” such as ethics or leadership are equality as important. When an employer looks at your resumé what they are really trying to determine is how well you’ll fit into their organization. You may have the job qualifications, but do you also possess the personal qualities they are looking for? These FREE displaced worker training programs from the Management and Strategy Institute will help you improve your soft skills and show employers you’re serious about personal improvement.
