Ranferi Pineda used communication skills he learned in his Employability Skills Class to make a suggestion at his job that gave him recognition. This class was the best thing that ever happened to me, and it came at a perfect time in my career. I now see career advancement possibilities for me at this company.

RenfariRanferi Pindeda has been employed with a company for two years. During this time, he observed areas in his department that needed process improvements. He tried several times to talk with his direct supervisor, and offer his ideas of how his department could work more efficiently. But, his supervisor didn’t listen to him or take his suggestions seriously.

Discouraged and frustrated, Ranferi decided to talk with another supervisor. This time the supervisor listened to his ideas and liked his ideas so much that she transferred Ranferi into her department. At the same time, the company was creating a ’round table’ group where they invited different employees from different departments in the company to join supervisors, and managers to talk about what works well and doesn’t work well in the company. Ranferi was invited by his new supervisor to join this special group where his improvement ideas and suggestions are welcomed.

Ranferi enrolled in an Employability Skills class at Centennial Education Center this summer where he learned Professionalism skills which he applied to his job.

If I hadn’t taken the Employability Skills class, I never would have the confidence or the knowledge and understanding to approach another supervisor in the company. This class taught me the skills needed to communicate my ideas in a professional manner. I learned, too, important skills about how the system works, about how to get around workplace politics, how to identify the gatekeepers in the company, and much more. I even got the opportunity to use my elevator speech during the round table meeting when the manager asked each participant to introduce themselves.  Most of the other employees talked about their families, their hobbies, and things not related to work. But, I knew from attending the Employability Skills class that the correct answer was to tell them about my job, my classes I’m taking at Centennial Educational Center, and my workplace skills and strengths.

 
This class was the best thing that ever happened to me, and it came at a perfect time in my career. I now see career advancement possibilities for me at this company. I learned that some of the managers also started in a job like mine at this company, and advanced into a manager’s position. That’s where I see myself in five to ten years – as a manager. This class also confirmed that my strengths are in business, that’s where I feel most comfortable.

If you haven’t taken the Employability Skills class, I recommend that you do.
