According to a recent interview with LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, the biggest skills gap in the U.S. these days is not coding – but soft skills. Soft skills (or human-skills or people-skills) are often overlooked by individuals, but certainly not by employers. Hiring managers and recruiters specifically call out interpersonal skills such as communication, collaboration and time management as skills they look for in candidates joining their teams.
If you’ve been following the Coach’s Corner blog series, you’re hopefully already benefiting from these weekly posts where coaches share their knowledge and practical advice on topics such as empathy, active listening, stress and change management. We’re continuing our focus on raising awareness of soft skills, and helping our SAP Community members increase their emotional intelligence so that we can build stronger relationships and stronger communities.
If staying relevant and putting your best-self out there is important to you, then you won’t want to miss our upcoming SAP Community Call on November 19, 2018. Two of SAP’s Senior Technical Recruiters will share knowledge of how soft skills impact hiring decisions, and reveal what they look for in terms of online presence and EQ of prospective candidates.
