According to Dan Roth, LinkedIn’s editor-in-chief, when you talk to employers about the skills they are looking for in today’s hot job market, they’re soft skills such as communication, problem solving, and adaptability. This is an excellent article on the importance of soft skills and how they can help advance your career. During the job search process, all job seekers should be prepared to “prove” their soft skills are true with actual examples of projects, accomplishments, and learning experiences. Otherwise, job seekers are doing nothing but giving an opinion of themselves.
