What's NEW?

Hard Skills vs. Soft Skills


Many employers have decided that soft skills are more important than hard skills.

What is the difference between hard skills and soft skills?  

Hard skills refer to the job-related knowledge and abilities that employees need to perform their job duties effectively.

Soft skills, on the other hand, are the personal qualities that help employees really thrive in the workplace.

Hard skills help you identify candidates who are good on paper, whereas soft skills indicate which of these candidates are good in person.  This means that you need a good mix of hard and soft skills in every employee so they can be successful in their role.


Soft skills are more often seen as personality traits you may have spent your whole life developing.   
They are called upon when you manage your time, communicate with other people or confront a difficult situation for the first time.

    Why Use a Recruiter?

    • We find the passive candidates.
    • We know where to find the hidden talent that matches client needs.
    • We source geographically based on client needs.
    • Confidentiality is an important part of our ethics.
    • We qualify candidates using both hard and soft skill questions.  No need to go through unqualified resumes.  
    • We conduct reference checks.
    • We negotiate and facilitate the full cycle process.

    In its purest form, the role of the recruiter is to enhance the lives of candidates and improve client profitability.  The hard work of the process is determining the needs of the client and matching it against the wants of the candidate.  The luck (the result of the hard work) occurs when there is a match and both sides are happy.  A successful hire has to be win-win for both sides.
