While this isn't the first time Ron Jackson has come to the Career Center to volunteer his time and share his expertise, his visit was greatly appreciated by our Law Enforcement students.

Mr. Jackson spent an entire day with the Law Enforcement class, helping student learn more about both the "soft” skills  and "hard" skills required in today's workforce. Soft skills are the skills you often learn right at home and from good role models.  Some soft skills include communication, teamwork, presentation skills, pat, such as work ethic, sense of teamwork, cooperation, patience, resilience, etc.  The "hard skills" are more specific skill sets for individual career areas.

Mr. Jackson went on to demonstrate good use of these skills by engaging the class in listening skills, reviewing mock applications completed by the students and delved into the process of individual mock interviews with our students.  Not only were fellow classmates able to hear a variety of interview styles, they were privy to the suggestions and critique; addressing areas on which to improve.

As an instructor, it is wonderful to see students have an opportunity like this: hearing from an outside force, one who is embedded in the community, who is a positive role model; and someone who has good information to share.  Ron Jackson did just that.  He shared information about his experience and helped shed light for students on the personal and professional development needed to be successful.
