A new Millennial Career study in the USA showed that managers are placing more emphasis on soft skills like communication, critical thinking, and overall professionalism, when hiring.
However, more than half of them (54%) believe that social media has caused a deterioration in graduates’ writing skills (83%), ability to focus on a task (79%), and verbal communication skills (78%).
And elsewhere around the world.
Bit of a pattern:
- life nowadays requires us all to have better soft skills
- life nowadays is causing a deterioration in our soft skills
