Soft skills are taken just as seriously as technical skills here and are part of every days life. Every day we do a stand up for the whole school, and students take turns giving a 2-3 min presentation on anything they choose (hobbies, tech, etc). They have to prepare slides and are given feedback post presentation. We have a ‘professionalism’ track that helps students learn the importance of communication and showing up on time. Whether formally assigned roles or informal cultural influences, Holberton strives to help students equip students with ALL necessary skills to perform well in the software engineering industry, and this includes soft skills.
