All work is social. Even isolated jobs have some interpersonal aspects. In this presentation, Dr. talk about multiple efforts to address and understand the use of social skills in the labor market. These include the pilot of a randomized controlled trial in which soft skills training used with college students with disabilities. We also present findings on the use of social capital and social role to influence starting wage for people with disabilities. Finally, we will briefly discuss new ways for modeling workplace social effectiveness.
