In addition to learning valuable technical skills, DPS CareerConnect provides students with the soft skills that they need to succeed in college and in the modern workplace. The Traits of a Young Professionals framework was developed in 2015 and taught to students participating in the summer 2016 CareerLaunch internship program. These are now being incorporated in all of our classes. These are guidelines to remind students important values that will help them become better professionals and strong leaders. Eighty-four percent of employers participating in the CareerLaunch program agreed that their student was very well or adequately prepared to adapt to a professional environment.
