Research shows that most employers now consider soft skills to be just as important if not more important that technical skills when hiring new employees. While remote work in the age of COVID-19 continues to be a reality for many, soft skills have become even more important. Luckily, graduate school offers many opportunities to develop the kinds of soft skills that are necessary for professionals in all fields. Learn what soft skills are, how to develop them, and how they can help you thrive and excel in your career.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand what soft skills are and why they are so important
  2. Gain self-awareness about soft skills you already have and those you want to develop
  3. Identify strategies for developing and strengthening soft skills
  4. Learn an effective way to demonstrate these soft skills to potential employers
