Soft SkillsSoft skills are abilities that are difficult to learn from a book that can be cultivated with experience. These are generalist skills that increase an individuals productivity in a wide range of roles. As such, soft skills are typically more valuable than hard skills but are notoriously difficult to measure. It is easy to state that you have soft skills on a resume but this often isn't very believable. However, if you are able to convince employers you actually have these skills in an interview, this can greatly increase your chances of an offer. For example, employers like hiring employees with high work ethic and diligence who are also flexible and cooperative.
