Soft skills will help you land that next job

Soft skills will help you land that next job | Personal Development | Scoop.it

(BPT) - You’ve polished your resume, updated your references and picked up your best outfit from the dry cleaners. You’re ready for that big interview. But while your experience and qualifications may match the position perfectly, have you given any thought to your soft skills?

 

Soft skills include a person’s attitude, workplace behavior, values and ethics. Increasingly, employers are looking at soft skills as the deciding factor when choosing between two applicants.

I'd love to get your take on this article. The article states that increasingly, employers are valuing soft skills over technical skills. Do you agree?

The Future of Work: Research Report

The Future of Work: Research Report | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Today’s business leaders face the challenge of creating the future workplace. Because of the advent of new technologies as well as the emergence of Millennials as a major percentage of the workforce, the future workplace will look vastly different than the one we are used to. At the same time, a culture of sharing, transparency, and mobility is entering the business world, as technology barriers lower. This change is being driven by the consumerization of IT, which can be described as the introduction of the popular consumer-grade technologies and devices that are spreading into the workplace for business use.

 

To better understand the scope and nature of this changes, Chess Media Group conducted a global research study in May 2013, surveying 605 employees who currently use social and collaboration technology tools, and how these tools affect their ability to work efficiently and flexibly.

This is certainly interesting but this small survey is at best suggestive rather than indicative of the future of work.

Agreed. This was small study however it is interesting to compare it to others that have been conducted.
