Employability / 'Soft Skills'

Soft skills or "employability skills" such as communication, teamworking, time management and problem solving are becoming increasingly important to graduate recruiters. Through students graduating at the similar times and CVs looking similar the recruiters are struggling to differenciate. Hard skills refer to Academic qualifications.
