GPCB622 - Essential Soft Skills for Career Success

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.

1. Understand what soft skills are and why they are so important
