Soft skills are skills which are difficult to assign an objective numeric measurement to, such as empathy, or "being a people person".
Soft skills is a sociological term which refers to the cluster of personality traits, social graces, ability with language, personal habits, friendliness, and optimism that mark people to varying degrees. Soft skills complement hard skills, which are the technical requirements of a job.
Soft Skills are also known as 'people skills' and a lot of importance is being given to development of these skills today. You may excel in hard skills, which are your technical skills, but if you lack soft skills, it is possible that you may either not get employed at all or you may fail to rise your career. You will also find it difficult to communicate with people when you pursue your higher studies. Soft Skills are personal traits that help you to interact with others in the right manner. These skills are extremely useful to help one get along with others and building contacts when necessary. They help in promoting one's team spirit and also define good leadership qualities.
Soft skills are skills that cannot be measured easily. This includes skills like communication skills, leadership skills, presentation skills etc. that can be observed but cannot be measured easily. Hard Skills like knowledge of a product or process can be tested and measured easily through a quiz or test.
Skills are of two kinds. One is the Hard Skills and the other is the Soft Skills. Hard skills are those skills that you are knowledgeable about and help you in quantitative and qualitative outputs. For example: in the soft ware industry, let us say an individual with 'C' programming language is brilliant and hence could write absolutely fantastic code..then s/he has great C skills. But this code writer has problems with dealing with others then this person has very bad 'soft skills'. A first grade automobile engineer can build a car from scratch but cannot make the team deliver a 'model' to a deadline could be a person with great hard skills but may be lacking soft skills. Similarly, some one with very bad academic grades need not be a failure in life. Because s/he is quite good at soft skills. May be this person is a great 'people' person would be able to get along well and usually leaves everyone around smiling. So when you have to mention your skills ..be precise about the technical skills that you are bringing into the job and the qualitative difference that you would be making to the team or your colleagues and or clients would be you soft skills. Hope that is clear, in case of doubt err on the right side and shoot me a mail..:)
Soft skills are usually those personality or personal attributes that enable a persons social interactions and effectiveness. This can lead to enhanced (business) relationships, job performance and career prospects. Unlike technical or hard skills, which tend to be specific to a certain type of task or activity, soft skills are applicable to everyone in different measures.
I personally feel that soft skills should be given more importance than technical skills because we can develop technical skills by reading knowledgable books and by undergoing sets of training. it requires more effort to gain soft skills because that strictly requires lots of changes in your behaviour...
