Got the job? Now get ahead!
77% of employers seek candidates with soft skills and many consider them more crucial than hard skills. When it comes to succeeding in the workplace, your technical ability only gets you half way there.
The rest is about being a good communicator, building relationships, taking initiative and ultimately having the right attitude.
“When evaluating a potential hire it’s tempting to bring on board someone with the technical skills to immediately get down to work. But a smarter strategy is to vet candidates carefully for their softer qualities. Hire for attitude, not skill.” – Donna Wells, CEO Mindflash
In this one day program, you’ll be equipped with the practical workplace and soft skills required to hit the ground running in a business environment and give yourself the best chance of success.

About The Instructor
Steve Glaveski, Co-founder of Collective Campus
He has since gone on to advise other early stage tech-startups and is a co-founder of Collective Campus, sighting an archaic mentality of “the way things have always been done around here” as a key motivator for wanting to get into the space. Steve is also a regular innovation blogger, having written for Venture Beat, Startup Daily and Shareable in addition to independent publishing on LinkedIn.
When not immersing himself in all things business and innovation, Steve can be found hitting weights in the gym, cycling down Beach Road, catching a live band on AC/DC Lane or enjoying some smashed avocado on toast at one of Melbourne’s many famous inner city cafes.
Qualifications: Master of Accounting, Bachelor of Business, Agile Certified Practitioner, Project Management Professional
