Contrary to popular beliefs, there are a significant number of employers looking for college graduates and entry-level employees. Although many job descriptions use the terminology ‘experience with’, employers seek candidates who offer transferable soft skills such as strong communication, leadership qualities and the ability to work collaboratively as well as within a team environment. Entry-level job seekers often misunderstand how today’s job market offers training for hard skills providing the candidate can demonstrate potential and competencies in other basic areas. It is important to demonstrate how your soft skills were applied in classes, extracurricular activities, or in other environments such as organizational groups or other non-related work groups.
