Helping College Graduates Learn How to Behave in the Office

From a Wall Street Journal story by Lindsay Ellis headlined “New Grads Have No Idea How to Behave in the Office. Help Is on the Way.”:

Recent graduates might be great at accounting or coding, but they need a little help when it comes to dinner parties and dress codes.

Many members of the class of 2023 were freshmen in college in the spring of 2020, when campuses shuttered due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They spent the rest of their college years partially in virtual mode with hybrid internships and virtual classes. Students didn’t learn some of the so-called soft skills they might have in the past by osmosis on the job, from mentors and by practicing on campus.
