High Schools

Career readiness and employability skills also known as transferable skills, have become a critical part of education. Employers are seeking graduates with a combination of skills that fall under this career readiness and employability umbrella that include such things as soft skills or people skills, customer service skills and life skills. These skills include: effective non-verbal and verbal communication, problem solving, being a team player, accepting responsibility, having a positive attitude, showing good character and time management.

AHA's career and professional development courses, licensed by the Commission on Higher Education (CHE) of South Carolina, give emphasis to key employability traits and multicultural skills needed for success in today's diverse workforce.

In today's workforce, soft skills or people skills have become increasingly valued by employers. While traditionally, workers were hired primarily for their technical or functional skills, organizations are now placing greater emphasis on less tangible qualities, such as good communication skills, cooperativeness, character and a positive attitude. AHA teaches the soft skills that are needed for young adults to succeed in the workplace.

Student Reviews

Eldridge M., Philippines
The greatest challenge that I have encountered is working with different types of people. Sometimes I like to question myself why things are the way they are. Why some people act nice and some act aggressive when dealing with one another. It feels like we forget that they are who we are. It came to a point that I was about to give up since I can't understand why my other co-workers are acting the way they do. But with the help of the AHA seminars, I became more open to different cultures and now develop ways to battle stereotypes. I was able to build a harmonious relationship with my co-workers of different races.
Evelyn I., Argentina
I learnt that even thought that sometimes in the workplaces I will face difficult situations with coworkers as with guests, it is always up to me how I can react and act, it is my choice how I can improve at work and at the same time enjoy it every day. It is all about my attitude and my commitment with my career and my work that it is going to help me to give that "extra" to the guests, others coworker and the company. Also, the diversity and multicultural exchange is something unavoidable in this industry and at the same time it is what makes this industry extremely enjoyable and amazing.
