The pandemic has changed the employer’s requirement and for the 2021 hiring process, they are now more focused on soft skills rather than qualifications.
So, here are the top soft skills for you to look that employers are looking for in 2021:
1. Creative and problem solving
Employers look for those people who aren’t afraid of tackling challenges. Candidates that can come with creative solutions and ideas are a great fit for employers.
2. Communication skills
Now, most communication is done through emails, chats, or phone conference calls, hence, it is essential to have strong communication skills.
3. A growth mind-set
Showcase your growth mindset by highlighting new skills that can fit the role of the company.
4. Emotional intelligence
Emotional intelligence is the ability to respond to your emotions and others to tackle the workforce easily and efficiently while remote working.
5. Active listening
Active listeners show that they’re engaged in the conversation. It is a great way to make a good impression by being attentive and pouring in relevant suggestions.
