A skill is a behavior or ability youve developed through training or experience. And, while all personal skills are behaviors, not all behaviors are skills. For example, telling a joke is a skill; laughing at a joke is a behavior.
Soft skills, sometimes known as "people skills," are personal attributes that enhance an individual's interactions, job performance and career prospects. Unlike hard skills, which tend to be specific to a certain type of task or activity, soft skills are broadly applicable.
Soft skills are sometimes broken down into personal attributes, such as:
a sense of humor
and interpersonal abilities, such as:
the ability to teach.
It's often said that hard skills will get you an interview but you need soft skills to get (and keep) the job.
