Skills That Set You Apart


Having the right set of technical skills is crucial to landing a job. But what sets you apart from other qualified applicants? At George Brown, we know the top five people skills that will make you stand out to employers.

Work Ethic

Do you know the difference between an adequate and outstanding attitude towards work? We’ll help you cultivate a strong work ethic that will show you’re someone who can be relied on, even during stressful times. 


One’s ability to work effectively with others can be the difference between a promotion and a layoff. We’ll show you why being a team player is often the only way you can solve the daily challenges you’ll face.


When it comes to work, doing what you’re required to do is really the bare minimum. To help you distinguish yourself from other applicants, we’ll show you how to take the lead on projects, work independently, and solve potential problems.


Your skill in speaking and writing is probably the single greatest factor in your job success. We’ll help you develop the communication skills you’ll need to complete projects more efficiently and build positive relationships with both clients and colleagues.

Customer Service

Customer service involves much more than just being nice to people. We’ll help you foster active listening skills, as well as the ability to read people’s emotions and find solutions that work for all parties involved.

At George Brown College, we know the importance of people skills in the professional world, which is why we’ve conducted our own research among GTA employers to ensure we understand their specific needs when it comes to candidates.

Now we’re giving our students the chance to gain this broad spectrum of workplace-ready skills through field education, simulated work environments, applied research projects and countless other in-class and out-of-class experiences.

We’re going to help make interview fails a thing of the past!
