Time magazine published an interesting article in November 2013, “The Real Reason New College Grads Can’t Get Hired”.  This article has been making the rounds in various discussion forums, including LinkedIn

It mentions a survey finding that:

more than 60% of employers say applicants lack “communication and interpersonal skills

It cites another survey mentioning that:

nearly 1 in 5 employers worldwide can’t fill positions because they can’t find people with soft skills. Specifically, companies say candidates are lacking in motivation, interpersonal skills, appearance, punctuality and flexibility.


So how can Toastmasters benefit college grads?

By helping members to improve both their communication skills as well as their leadership skills, which is exactly what employers are looking for!
