Today, living and working in a technology-enabled environment, learning hard skills like digital skills, tech skills, and language skills are just not sufficient enough to pitch one to either securing a job or climb to the top of the ladder. In fact, one has to acquire a cluster of other productive personality traits that characterize one’s relationship in a milieu. The Collins English Dictionary defines the term “soft skills” as “desirable qualities for certain forms of employment that do not depend on acquired knowledge: they include common sense, the ability to deal with people and a positive flexible attitude”. They are a combination of interpersonal skills, social skills, communication skills, character traits, and attitudes together with career attributes.

‘Soft Skills’ has become a buzz-word in the job marketplace today. It has attracted the attention of students, professionals, and entrepreneurs – all over the world. Employability means proving one’s mettle. Hence, all job aspirants are expected to be equipped with various skills in the fast-changing world of the twenty-first century. Paradoxically, this most sought after skill in the marketplace is also the hardest to find. Retention of jobs or long-term job success depends upon this all-important skill. Right from a mail-dispatch clerk to senior managers in a corporate house cannot escape from its relevance and importance.
Soft Skills complement hard skills which are the occupational requirements of a job and other related in-house activities. They are related to emotions, feelings, and insights. A person’s soft skill EQ ( Emotional Intelligence Quotient) is an important factor of his/her individual contribution to the success of an organization – particularly those companies dealing with customers face-to-face. Screening/training for personal traits such as dependability and conscientiousness can yield significant returns on investment for an organization. The need for such soft skills become all the more sought after by employers in addition to standard qualifications.

7 SECRETS FOR CRACKING A JOB INTERVIEW
- Make enquiries about the company calling you for the interview:
Through Google or Linkedin make discreet inquiries about the job offered and the company profile. If possible, narrow/zero-in on the person who is likely to interview you. Collect maximum information and try to prepare yourself for the interview.
- Offer a firm handshake
Try to establish a firm eye and hand contact at the time of your first meeting with the interviewer. A weak handshake would send the wrong signals –lack of will power and absence of backbone. Whereas, a strong and firm handshake means self-confident and wise.
- Be your natural self
Try not to be above or below your self or potential. Be your natural self with both the plus and minus points. Many employers prefer their employees to be their natural selves with God-given talent and attitude
- No excessive talk
Especially, if it happens to be a video interview talk less, and listen more. Try to promote dialogue by asking a few questions. Try avoiding a listless monologue.
- Make a recee of the office and surroundings
Try scouting for some personal information of people in the office and their tastes and interests – like curios and displays on desks and walls – and try to make a personal connect.
- Try to be pleasant and warm with people you meet, both on your way to the interview and back.
- Never forget to thank the interviewer for the opportunity given. Show your gratitude for having been friendly and interactive at the interview. Make him understand that you are looking forward to the positive/favorable results and feedback. If unsuccessful, you may treat the opportunity as a learning experience for the future.
