    What are Soft Skills?
    Soft skills are "people" skills which enable you to interact effectively with others. Such skills include leadership, communication, teamwork and time management.

    Why are Soft Skills Important?
    Even if you have all the right technical skills to land a job in your field, you will be limiting your chances of career success if you lack people skills. Also, soft skills are becoming increasingly vital to employers when choosing between candidates with similar experience and education.
