Gina Narcisi

Technical skills will always top hiring managers‘ lists, but increasingly, employers are seeking out candidates that are bringing all-important “soft skills,” or emotional intelligence qualities to the table.

Project Management

Project management involves starting, planning, executing, controlling, and closing projects.
