Have you got the S factor?


How employable are you? As competition for jobs increases, now is an opportunity to get that margin over the competition. Make yourself a more attractive offering to employers.

While technical abilities still remain the main factor in securing a new role, now softer skills, can be equally important. Randstad Technologies consultants speak to hiring managers every day, soft skills are more important than ever!

 The top five soft skills employers are looking for are:

1. Communication
2. A good work ethic
3. Common sense
4. A customer focus
5. An ability to understand the bigger picture.

So set yourself apart from the competition at the outset. Whether you’re considering your next move within your organisation or outside it, look between the lines of the job specification.

Skills that were once high on employers’ wishlists are now largely taken for granted. Today, it’s about showing what soft skills you can bring alongside those that companies are seeking.

Show them you have the edge!
