Soft Skills are Essential to Job Security and Success

Soft Skills are Essential to Job Security and Success

When it comes to job security, soft skills are key. Technical skills matter but soft skills matter too…a great deal. If one has technical skills but no soft skills, this can hinder job success. Soft skills such as comprehensive listening and holding eloquent conversations are important when it comes to personal growth at work. Building trust is vital when it means a positive work relationship. Soft skills allow one to manage their emotions and communicate effectively.

The Pros and Cons of Job Hopping

The Pros and Cons of Job Hopping

More reports and surveys showing that “job hopping” and a lack of perceived value being tied to tenure is on the rise. Is this just a trend or a more accepted norm in the world we live in today? Is it largely a bi-product of the extremely low unemployment rates of recent years and will it change when we see things swing the other way at some point? How much impact does the wave of young entrepreneurial tech billionaires who seem to have skipped over the traditional period of paying your dues have to do with this trend? All things to consider, but in general it does appear that younger professionals changing jobs on a more frequent basis is more accepted now than it has been in previous generations. Prior to the last 5 years I would say 3+ years was the expected norm for being in a job before looking at transitioning, but now we are seeing 18 months or less in many cases and the candidates don’t seem to be concerned about how it will impact their candidacy for new roles. At least not for now. In today’s blog I’ll dig in a bit on the topic of changing jobs more frequently than the norm and offer some insight to the potential benefits and draw-backs.
