Have you ever been at an interview and felt that you had all the certifications, all the language skills, and all the expertise
that the job required, but you still didn’t get the position?
If your answer is yes, and you are still wondering why that happened, then consider this: do you have good communication skills? Are you a good listener? All in all, do you have the necessary soft skills that the position required?
Soft skills are the personal skills that everybody possesses to a certain extent, their quality and quantity depends on one’s character, circumstances, upbringing, and social circles (meaning the people one’s ever interacted with).
Soft skills are more often than not the main selling point at an interview. Therefore you need to take them into account when preparing for a job interview. Do you have strong soft skills? Do you need to improve in that area?
