LAS VEGAS, NV -- Here are some of the most-sought-after soft skills identified by CareerBuilder and some examples of how you can actually show these intangibles on your resume. Confident - Emphasize any leadership roles you've held, ranging from positions within formal workplace management or professional organizations, to group projects or committees.
Flexible - Point out your wide range of skills and your ability to interact with a variety of audiences, such as co-workers, vendors, customers, and the general public. Also identify times you've been flexible with your time, such as working various shifts or participating in work-related activities on the weekends. Organized - Prove you're organized by citing how you've successfully juggled multiple priorities, simultaneously managed several projects, or integrated employee management into your existing workload.
Team-Oriented - Highlight some group projects you've been a part of, times you've worked with others outside your department, committees you've participated in, or your contribution to the achievement of a team goal. Self-motivated - Draw attention to extra training or knowledge you've pursued. Positive Attitude - Demonstrate this by pointing out the things you learned from even the most menial jobs, refraining from painting former employers in a negative light, and being optimistic in your objective statement, if you have one. By taking the time to tailor your resume to each job description, you'll get ahead of the competition, making it more likely you'll get noticed and land an interview.
