After You Get the Job, Here's How to Excel

Entry-level job seekers with strong soft skills will have an advantage over their peers.

GETTING A JOB CAN BE difficult. But at least there is a ton of information out there about how to do it, including steps to take to get an interview (do your research and apply online) and documents you'll need to apply for a job (like a resume and a cover letter).

The problem is, there is far less information out there about how to excel at a job once you're offered the position! It's one of the reasons that the National Association of Colleges and Employers is working closely with institutions and private companies to define career readiness and create materials and guidelines for students and career services offices.

In a tight labor market, like the one we are experiencing today, a mix of soft and hard skills is critical for any candidate. Hard skills are the technical and education requirements of a job, like engineering code proficiency or an accounting degree. But as an entry-level job seeker with minimal experience in the workforce, soft skills can have a significant influence on your performance at your first job.
