Because a student has to develop these skills in order to finish and receive a passing grade in each class. Okay, but these abilities are shown in high school. This is true; however, being a local university graduate means this person has shown initiative to further their education on their own. These strengths are all key components companies look for in a potential employee. This means the company does not have to guess or train an employee to have these basic skills.
