Hard skills get you the interview. Soft skills get you the job.
When interviewers read your resume, they are looking for hard skills. Your experience shows your hard skills. Here are some examples.
- Brand Development
- Computer Programming
- Data Management
- Financial Management
- Internet Programming
- People Management
- Research and Development
- Software knowledge (e.g., word processing, spreadsheet, image editing, database, etc.)
You show your soft skills in an interview. Your interpersonal skills and your character skills are soft skills.
- Positive Attitude
Some people list soft skills in their resume. If you find that you are having trouble keeping your resume from getting too long, remember that interviewers are not looking for soft skills when they read a resume. They are looking for hard skills that show your qualifications for a job. Therefore, put hard skills on your resume and practice your soft skills for your interview.
