There are certain personality traits and soft skills that an employer always seeks in an employee during the selection process of their first job. The key soft skills required are,
- Communication Skills: Communication skills give a powerful signal about the personality of a person. Some people are crisp and forceful in their expressions; some are talkative and boring where some are clear and abrupt. You must have encountered situations where some people are right on the mark and others are way-off the bulls-eye. This is further compounded in verbal communication when the speaker’s body language, listening skills and gestures are visible to the listeners.
- Teaming and Interpersonal Skills: This is a critical ingredient at this stage of the career. Teaming and interpersonal skills are required when you work with peers to achieve common goals, when you deal with clients to win new businesses, and when you compete with the industry to reach a shared objective.
- Positive Attitude: This is a very vital component when you begin your career. It becomes easy for anyone to dwell in an organization when you are enthusiastic and have a positive approach. You must be enthusiastic and spread positive energy around. Those who have a positive approach and can-do attitude have an electrifying effect on those who interact with them.
