Soft Skills Workshop

Soft Skills

This one-day workshop will help you gain a better understanding of key soft skills and how they can complement and leverage your existing skill set. Soft skills are multifaceted and can include interpersonal skills, social skills, communication skills, attitudes, and teamwork and leadership abilities. Typically, soft skills are more difficult to measure, but they are immensely valuable, especially as your career progresses.

Soft skills and your career

In recent years as the tech boom continues to explode, Seattle is attracting more and more job seekers with strong foundations in computer science, engineering, IT, data analytics, and other technology related hard skills. These skills can get you in the door, but in order to continue to advance in your career, it is important to develop your soft skills as well. According to a CareerBuilder survey, an overwhelming majority of companies say soft skills are just as important as hard skills.
