Interesting findings from the CSUSM Senior Experience Project for the Oceanside Chamber…
CSUSM students surveyed Oceanside businesses and found out interesting information; including but not limited to, employers in Oceanside feel that in many cases new employees are lacking soft skills and trainability, Oceanside employers typically search from within and take recommendations from current employees when looking to fill positions, and employers look for employees at job fairs and on job websites. So, what does that mean? Why is there such a deficit in soft skills? The research findings give us a great basis to create programs to support our business community.
