Soft skills are not soft; they are the true hard skills that generate results. Not paying full attention to these skills is a huge mistake since they are a vital part of building your reputation aiming for something excellent.

A vast majority of companies struggle to assess them, and despite the importance, the ways to measure them haven’t changed much over the past few decades.

The Reputation Resumé has, without any doubt, an exciting position to fill since your stakeholders see your result skills best.
