Soft Skills Needed

Ability To Self-Manage, Take On Broader Roles Among Top Soft Skills.

The Vancouver Sun (10/2, Sankey) reports that although “hard technical skills are a basic requirement in any given field,” it is “the softer intangible skills that really set a job seeker apart from the crowd in the marketplace, according to an informal survey of educators and recruiters.”  The survey found that “presentation, communication, listening ability, command of the language, social and personal habits, styles of management, leadership, problem-solving, creativity and optimism rank among the must-have skills in the new economy.”  And “among the skills in greatest demand is the ability to self-manage, in combination with effective interpersonal skills,” while “being able to multi-task effectively and take on broader roles is also a key benefit to employers.”  Greg Pocherewny, vice-president of Robert Half Canada said, “We’re seeing more and more roles that are hybrids of traditional disciplines and that bridge the gap between specialties.  Having the ability to assume a broader range of responsibilities is highly valued by most employers.”
