NEW FEATURE: Soft Skills needed to succeed in every role

Soft skills are the personal attributes you need to succeed in the workplace. These are often related to how you work with others—in other words, these are people skills. Soft skills are different from hard skills, which are directly relevant to the job to which you are applying. These are often more quantifiable, and easier to learn. A hard skill for a carpenter, for example, might be the ability to operate a power saw or use framing squares.

Regardless of the job to which you're applying, you need at least some soft skills. In order to succeed at work, you must get along well with all the people with whom you interact, including managers, co-workers, clients, vendors, customers, and anyone else you communicate with while on the job.

Employers want employees who are able to effectively interact with others. These skills are also very hard to teach, so employers want to know that job candidates already have the soft skills that enable them to be successful in the workplace.

@jobsfornationals we are constantly looking at ways to help Employers bridge the diversity gap through transparency and improved communication with the UAE National job seekers. This is why we have added a new feature to include 'critical soft-skills' required to succeed in most roles.  

Now, through a simple 'drop-down', when posting your next job you can better describe the soft skills that candidates 'need-to-have' to help them succeed in the role!
