Add soft skills to your resume

While every resume should have a dedicated skills section, it’s also important to include soft skills in other parts of your resume to make it more comprehensive and appealing to potential employers.

Here are some ideas about where and how to write soft skills into your resume:

βœ… Professional Summary

This is the first thing a recruiter will see on your resume, so make sure to add your best soft skills to make your resume stand out.

πŸ“Œ Sample: A dedicated and motivated project manager with a proven track record of successful team leadership and problem-solving. Skilled at managing multiple projects simultaneously, ensuring timely delivery and client satisfaction.

βœ… Skills section

It is important to add a mix of both hard and soft skills. Generally, six to eight talents should be mentioned either with bullet points or commas.

πŸ“Œ Sample: Leadership β€’ Adaptability β€’ Teamwork β€’ Problem-solving β€’ Empathy β€’ Time Management

βœ… Work experience

Highlighting soft skills in your work history explanations can be very impactful.

Be sure to show off both hard and soft skills, and use clear and concise language to explain your abilities.

Follow these tips, and you’ll create a resume that shows your strengths and gets you the job you want.
