Are you looking for a job in IT? Make sure that you are presenting more than just your technical skills to potential employers. In a study released April of this year, it was found that 77% of employers believe that “soft skills (less tangible skills associated with one’s personality, such as a positive attitude) are just as important as hard skills. Sixteen percent of employers said soft skills are more important than hard skills when evaluating candidates for a job .”
