Hard skills & Soft skills

Hard skills are teachable abilities or skill sets that are easy to quantify. Typically, you'll learn hard skills in the classroom, through books or other training materials, or on the job. 

 

Examples of hard skills include:

  • Proficiency in a foreign language

  • A degree or certificate

  • Typing speed

  • Machine operation

  • Computer programming

 

Soft skills, on the other hand, are subjective skills that are much harder to quantify. Also known as "people skills" or "interpersonal skills," soft skills relate to the way you relate to and interact with other people. 

 

Examples of soft skills include:

  • Communication

  • Flexibility

  • Leadership

  • Motivation

  • Patience

  • Persuasion

  • Problem Solving Abilities

  • Teamwork

  • Time Management

  • Work Ethic
