For a large number of organizations, hard skills are top of the list when hiring. That is, they’ll look for hard skills that are relevant to that job and the training or experience needed to perform the job well.
The importance of education, training, and job experience is critical, but you also need to consider fewer tangible abilities, like soft skills. After all, it’s not just about having the hard skilled, knowledgeable & highly qualified employees. It’s about them being able to work together as a team for the benefit of their own and the organization’s success.
Soft skills or Life skills are a set of productive personality traits that characterize one’s relationships in a situation. These skills include social elegances, communication abilities, language skills, personal habits, cognitive or emotional empathy, time management, teamwork, and leadership traits.
