By definition, Soft Skills are the transferable skills needed by an individual to make them “employable.” Soft skills may also be known as employment, work-readiness, or foundational skills.
Why are soft skills valuable?
- Employers are not only looking for individuals with good technical understanding and subject knowledge; they are often looking for candidates with developing expertise, knowledge base or mindset that will make them a more valuable employee.
- Individuals with soft skills can continually improve their performance, minimize errors, collaborate with coworkers, and perform their roles more effectively.
- A candidate with a broader set of skills will stand out against other candidates with similar qualifications and experience.
