Soft Skills: The Keys to Success

 

 

 
 
No matter what the current economic forecasts are, jobseekers that hold a security clearance enjoy bright prospects, especially if they offer employers a combination of technical skills and interpersonal abilities. You may have the technical skills needed to work, say, in the IT field, but what about your “soft skills,” such as interpersonal skills, the ability to write and speak clearly, and customer-relationship building skills. 

 

 

 “If you have these soft skills or develop them, you will be able to maintain your success,” agrees Patricia A. Frame, founder of Strategies for Human Resources. To find out if you have what employers are looking for in today’s marketplace, do your own personal soft skills/competencies audit:

  • Which skills do you need in your current job?
  • What do you know about the need?
  • How would you evaluate yourself on each skill you need?
  • How would your boss evaluate you on each?

Then assess the skills needed for other positions that interest you, says Frame. Look at position descriptions or job ads to consider both promotions within your current organization which interest you and external opportunities. Once you have assessed your current competencies versus needed ones, develop a plan, Frame advises:

  • Pick one competency you want to work on.
  • Identify your goal and what steps are needed to achieve it.
  • Put in a timeframe
  • Identify how you will know you have achieved your goal. 

Next, ask others for help. “Soft skills by their nature involve working with others, so you need others to help you develop yours,” Frame suggests. Share your plan with your boss, a mentor, or a talented co-worker and ask for their assistance and feedback. Then it’s time to practice.  Ask your co-workers, a mentor, or friend for feedback and specific information on what you did well and what still needs work. “Often keeping a record of what you have tried and what results you got will help you to keep going and to improve,” Frame advises. 

 

Finally, tackle another area. “No, it never ends,” says Frame. “Not if you want to succeed at work or in life.”

Patra Frame will be presenting career search strategy seminars at the upcoming Cleared Job Fair at the Double Tree Crystal City on June 11th.
