In a technological age, competition for employment is fierce.In order to stand out from the crowd, you need to be personable. Ironically the social media phenomenon has seen a rapid decline in people's social skills. We live in a time where face-to-face has been replaced with cyberspace and connecting with friends means disconnecting from the reality. Sure, the benefits of technology are many, but the damage is and continues to be far reaching. For instance, the more time we spend in an online world, the less time we spend developing basic communication skills that are a critical component of our personal development. So many young people lack the confidence needed to interact in a social setting, let alone in a workplace or job interview. That is why now, more than ever, you need to re-learn how to behave in contemporary social and professional settings in order to be able to thrive within them. If social skills are the building blocks of confidence and character, then the ability to communicate effectively is the VIP ticket to personal success. Learning about manners, social graces and conduct not will not only enable you to develop confidence, it will make way for the realization that you have the potential to contribute meaningfully to the world and live a happy, fulfilled life.
