Functional Skills

What are Functional Skills?

Functional skills, sometimes called “hard” or “technical” skills, are concrete abilities that you build mastery in throughout your career. Due to the rapid pace of technology, the skills required today are constantly changing and evolving. That’s why it’s important to keep abreast of trends, understand what skills certain jobs and industries demand, and begin to build those skills to make you a more competitive candidate. No matter your major, developing your functional skills can open doors!
