Yes, The Soft Skills Still Matter In Our High-Tech World

How many times have you hired a candidate that looked great on paper, blew you away in the interview, then turned out to be a tremendous mismatch for your company or the role?

In this article, you'll find out how to tell if a candidate has the right stuff: the soft skills that determine whether he'll fit in at your company.

Hi Todd,

You know how important fit is, so you'll want to read this month's Great Ideas. It's a quick guide to the most important soft skills: what they are, why they're important and how to identify them.

I hope you enjoy this article, and don't hesitate to let me know if you'd like more information on smart staffing or employee development.
