The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy has developed a series of free video vignettes, as part of its "Skills to Pay the Bills: Mastering Soft Skills for Workplace Success" curriculum.  Youth services programs, educators and others helping young job seekers prepare for employment are encouraged to view, display, share and lead discussions about the videos, which aim to help all youth, including those with disabilities, develop and strengthen six essential skills needed to succeed in today's workforce: communication, networking, enthusiasm and attitude, teamwork, problem-solving and critical thinking, and professionalism.
