Soft skills in demand

by The 100 Companies

Your chances of getting an interview are good when your skills and experience closely match those listed in the job description. However, there’s another skill set that employers want, but may not specifically ask for: soft skills.

A LinkedIn survey found that 92% of HR professionals/hiring managers are focused on an applicant’s soft skills because they know soft skills are predictive of success. Work ethic, empathy, emotional intelligence and communication skills are soft skills.

Hodges University’s AS in Professional Communication covers those areas and everything from workplace dynamics to interpersonal communication to team effectiveness in classes that inspire and motivate.
