Recruiter
When evaluating a potential candidate, many recruiters look at quantifiable, hard skills above all else. While specific, technical skills are undoubtedly important, a candidate's soft skills are also a piece of the puzzle that could help determine whether they will be a good fit for an open position. A positive attitude, the ability to work well under pressure, adaptability and organizational skills are usually at the top of the list of attributes that employers seek.
