  1. In my opinion, these skills are great for every day occurences. Problem solving skills, leadership and teamwork, adaptability, etc. are skills that can be used, not only for jobs, but all around. They're great while you're going to school, and even if you're simply just hanging out with friends if you think about it! If someone can adapt these skills, they have a better chance of succeeding in all aspects of their life. That's my opinion, but what's your input?
