Part B: Text Production

You have come across the blog Job and Career and want to share your opinion and experiences in this field with other young people. Write your blog entry of about 250 words in which you
  • explain what soft skills are and why they are important, according to the given material,
  • describe situations in which you had to show qualities as outlines in the box(es) "Ability to Work Well under Pressure" and/or "Positive Attitude",
  • choose one other skill listed in chart B, describe it and explain its importance.
Skill Up
Unlike academic hard skills developed in subjects like maths, English and science, soft skills tend to come from life experience or as the result of working towards a goal. 'Soft Skills' is a term often used by careers advisors and employers to describe the kind of essential personal skills and social capabilities people need to be able to do most jobs. It's often said that hard skills will get you an interview but you need soft skills to get - and keep - the job. Employers comment that school leavers lack soft skills and this partly down to a lack of life experience in general, compared to older job applicants.
Chart A
77% of employers say that soft skills are just as important as hard skills

Ability to Work Well under Pressure
Every job has its own pressures and employers will want to know that you have the life skills to be able to cope when the going gets tough. Despite what people might think, coping with pressure doesn't mean working harder or longer hours. It's about being as resourceful as you can. This might mean seeking out extra help with a project, or taking some time to recharge your batteries in the middle of a busy day.

Positive Attitude
Staying positive at work even when things get a bit challenging, using your initiative to help people out even when you haven't been asked to, owning up if something goes wrong and learning from your mistakes shows that you are committed to your work and can take responsibility for your own personal skills.

$\blacktriangleright$  Write blog entry
Soft skills, hard skills, what skills?
Not just your grades determine whether you will get a job or not - it is also your soft skills that have a great say in your future career. But what is the difference? Hard skills are academic skills - the knowledge you gained in school for instance - whereas soft skills are personal skills and social capabilites that you receive from your life experience. They are more like attitudinal values such as flexibility, confidence, self-motivation or the ability to work in a team.
Being able to work under pressure is another soft skill that is highly valued by employers. When I was working as an intern at a publisher's house, my supervisor got sick and stayed at home for over two weeks and I was left alone with all the tasks that we would usually share. Soon, the deadlines amassed and I got more and more tasks from other co-workers. Trying to do my tasks as effectively as possible, I made a plan of all my deadlines and the amount of work that was connected with it. Then, I asked my co-workers whether I could extend some of the deadlines a little bit - only a day or so and they agreed on it - no worries at all! Sometimes, you just need to be organized and ask for help in order to achieve your goals.
I want to point out one more soft skills that shouldn't be underrated: self-motivation. Self-motivation is the power that drives us to keep moving ahead while also being a primary means of realizing our goals and our own development. It is basically related to our faith that we do have the required skills and competencies for achieving sometimes challenging goals.
So, I would suggest you reflect on your own soft skills and then - go and get that amazing job!
