Hiring Based on Soft Skills: How to Establish a Strong Interview Process that Helps Identify Candidates with Essential Attributes - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to approach a review and interview process for new hires to identify excellent employees with highly valued soft skills.


You may have what looks like the perfect candidate on paper, and digital recruiting tools have helped to speed the hiring process by separating the wheat from the chaff when it comes to applicants. However, the perfect candidate on paper is not always going to be the best fit for your company or provide the professionalism and leadership you’re looking for. Instead, knowing how to hire candidates who possess “soft skills” will more likely result in an employee who operates well in the culture of your organization.

No matter how much technology and artificial intelligence have become part of our recruiting processes, candidates who possess soft skills are the most sought after in the current business climate. The ability to interact positively with others, show an authentic emotional intelligence, and lead others in a positive way will always be important skills. These are also skills that can be the most difficult to uncover in the digital recruiting process. 

Recruiters who are hiring even for entry level positions are zoning in on soft skills in making these decisions. The types of skills that recruiters are looking for include: attention to detail, strong written and oral communication skills, reliability, empathy, flexibility, integrity, organization, problem solving, resilience, willingness to learn, ability to work in a team, and the willingness to be a self-starter.

How can you identify these hard-to-quantify skills when interviewing potential candidates? Get valuable tips on the interview process to be able to identify employees with these skills using this on-demand webinar and come away with a roadmap on how to approach recruiting for soft skills.

After this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize what soft skills are, and why they are so important to the job and your business
  • Interview potential candidates in a way that helps you evaluate their soft skills
  • Develop your interview process so it provides insight into soft skills each step of the way
  • Apply tools and technology to help screen for soft skills
  • And much more!
