The Difference Between
Soft Skills and Hard Skills

Resume Keywords Soft skills for interview

Like most hiring managers, employers hiring recent graduates look for candidates with a mix of soft skills and hard skills.

Soft skills required of applicants regardless of the industry; they’re personal attributes and social abilities. Examples of the Top 20 Resume keywords Soft Skills are listed above.

Hard skills are more tangible skills you need to succeed in a job or industry. Technical and computer skills are examples of hard skills that employers look for in recent graduates.

Being a team player, having strong communication and interpersonal skills, and being able to analyze data and knowing what to do with it, are all important to hiring managers.

That’s why 57% of senior leaders today say soft skills are more important than hard skills.

The Hard Truth about Soft Skills and Six Sigma

A limitation that I find in many Six Sigma training courses is the lack of emphasis and attention to developing a Belt’s soft skills. In fact, to be a successful process expert requires you be an effective communicator, negotiator, project manager, team leader, mentor and coach all in one, just to name a few. Developing these skills can significantly help you successfully implement Six Sigma and your career.
