AmiSight 6/29: Interesting Insight How the Past Three Years Have Affected the Class of 2023

A fascinating article in the Wall Street Journal talks about how recent graduates of the Class of 2023 are facing challenges in developing soft skills due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, graduates may need help reading colleagues' cues or navigating meetings due to their disrupted college experience.
