The Importance of Soft Skills for Young People
Most young people aspiring to a job or already having one, do not realize the importance of developing soft skills
until they face the harsh reality. There is a great distance between what companies want in a candidate or employee and what they can offer.
Nowadays, the vast majority of companies find the competencies that a candidate or employee can offer more important than what school he comes from. Companies are finding it easier to develop someone in the knowledge needed for the organization than to teach them to make decisions or to solve conflicts. Companies are being subjected to a business environment with increasingly vertiginous changes and that forces them to react or adopt to these changes to align with the environment, mainly to what their customers or consumers expect.
Digital transformation, business intelligence, among other things, are great challenges faced by both organizations and those who work in them or aspire to work in them. It is therefore important to understand that today it's not about showing where you studied, but rather of demonstrating how capable you are of providing value and becoming an agent of change
that contributes to the achievement of the strategic objectives of the companies.
Hopefully in the short time that gap will begin to close. This can then translate into better opportunities for those young people eager to enter the battlefield.
