What You Need to Know About Screening For Soft Skills
Soft skills are the behavioral attributes that characterize an individual’s interactions with other people. They make up 25% of the skills required to successfully perform in a role and, critically, are directly related to career performance and advancement. To complicate matters, soft skills can’t be taught or accurately measured.
