GETTING EVERYONE IN THE ZONE -RELIABLE WHEN YOU NEED IT !
There is an axiom in business circles which suggests that hard skills will get a person an interview, but soft skills will land that person a job. This means an applicant with years of education and experience in the field might have the hard skills necessary to fill the position, but lack soft skills such as leadership ability or self-motivation necessary to perform well on the job. An ideal candidate for many job openings has a combination of both hard and soft skills, with number of human resource directors perferring to see soft skills such as time management and a willingness to be trained.
Soft skills are qualities, personality traits and social skills which everyone possesses in varying degrees. Some people make friends easily, for example, which would be considered a valuable soft skill in the world of sales. Others are extremely punctual, or able to make rational decisions under pressure. A person may also have the innate ability to co-workers from other cultures, or learn a new language quickly. These would all be considered valuable soft skills.
