Soft skills ... wooly, fluffy, comfortable ... not like ' real, hard, proper skills are they?
Soft skills, bendy, malleable, unmeasurable ... nothing like ' real, hard, proper skills ...
.. and yet
I often talk about vocabulary and language .... here's another one ... because if you list all the skills that people are highlighting as important in the future - it's close identical to the soft skill list.
My advice ... get into that cuddly warm blanket and embrace those soft skills -- you can always learn the other skills as and when you need them ... despite the name ... they're not that hard.
