Soft skills are more difficult to learn and often mature with time
Soft skills are more challenging to develop, since they have little to do with knowledge or expertise, but are closely linked with a person’s character.
It takes a conscious effort, ongoing practice, and a commitment to self-development to improve your soft skills.
Hard skills may look impressive on your CV, but the soft skills are what will set you apart from the many candidates who have similar expertise to you.
The development of soft skills provides a student with a different balance and it is arguable that they are then more able to create coping strategies when dealing with the stress and pressures of key examinations and the work environment, leading to improved well-being and mental health.
