Important Skills for Job Seekers and Online Business Owners
Knowledge of software and workplace procedures are a good base to have when applying for jobs there are other “soft skills” you need to know to perform well when working with other employees, contractors, clients and suppliers.
Most soft skills are centred around managing your time, priorities and your relationships with the people you work with and customers. Soft skills are taught in lots of different courses but when your studies align with your life goals most of these interactions become effortless and easy because you end up doing work that fits into your lifestyle and life goals.
