Training/Young Professionals

A Harvard – Stanford study concluded that one’s success (particularly in the workplace) is based on 85 percent social skills and less than 15 percent technical skills. Etiquette helps enhance a young professional’s marketability. Thousands of college graduates flood the job market each year, however, many will lack the basic etiquette skills needed to successfully obtain employment. Young professionals can stand well above their competition with Marci’s etiquette edge.
