SkillSoft Launches Courseware for University Graduates to Prepare for First Corporate Job

12 September 2011

SkillSoft, a leading SaaS provider of e-learning and performance support solutions for global enterprises, today announced a new courseware series created to help young professionals make the transition from universities to the corporate world.

The new courseware series, Campus to Corporate (http://www.skillsoft.com/online/campus) is offered through SkillSoft's award-winning Business Skills Courseware Library, and provides recent graduates with tips and recommendations on working in a professional environment for the first time.

"The transition from university to a corporate environment requires a big adjustment for many graduates," said SkillSoft's Asia Pacific Managing Director and Vice President, Glenn Nott.

"Expectations and responsibilities in the workplace are very different than those at university. There are unspoken nuances and social norms that most graduates are completely unaware of. They need to be prepared for the changes and ready to adapt in order to thrive in a professional environment.

"SkillSoft's new Campus to Corporate courseware teaches graduates strategies for adapting their behavior accordingly, making the adjustment to professional life easier for them as well as to ease the impact within the corporate environment."

The first course in the series is Campus to Corporate: Meeting New Expectations. This course focuses on teaching young professionals what will be expected of them as new employees and giving them strategies to meet those expectations. Some of the topics this course covers include:

The second course is Campus to Corporate: Developing a Professional Image. This course teaches the fundamentals on proper conduct and behavior as a new employee in an organisation. Topics for this course include:

SkillSoft has one of the world's largest catalogs of business skills courseware, spanning dozens of curricula such as accounting and finance, customer service, human resources, project management and managerial leadership, as well as perennial areas of interest such as time management, e-mail etiquette and dealing with difficult people. SkillSoft's award-winning courseware is self-paced, engaging and highly interactive.
