This is fascinating! iCIMS, a talent acquisition software company, published a survey of 400 HR and recruiting professionals. Titled, “The Soft Skills Jobs Seekers Need Now,” the survey highlights the attributes that sets job seekers apart from equally qualified candidates. In addition to oral communication skills, recruiters say the following attributes will give you an edge:
-Written communication skills
-Appropriate interview attire
The full survey contains much more, including tips for recent graduates, soft skills needed for leadership positions, and a look at how recruiters are judging you. Its a valuable tool for anyone currently looking or planning to look for work.
