On September 29, the American Center hosted a Networking event for 105 participants who successfully completed all six sessions of the Soft Skills in Career Development series of events. Individual sessions proved to be exceedingly popular, with attendees showing up an hour or more early in order to get a good seat.

This specific session was a series capstone where participants put into practice the skills which they had learned, including: cross-culture communication, digital marketing, interviewing skills, presentation skills, time management, and business communication. Working in teams, participants came up with solutions for different case study scenarios and presented their conclusions. This interactive program attracted approximate 1,500 participants over the whole series.
