A soft skill on a CV (also commonly called a resume) is an ability or character trait that you list to show employers how well you work with other people and how you can add value to their clients.
Soft skills are how people who know and you, including managers and colleagues, would describe you.
Employers consider candidates with soft skills valuable because they are likely to be great team players and positively contribute to the company’s culture. They are also likely to create an excellent customer experience and help with client loyalty and retention.
Some examples of soft skills include interpersonal skills, self-discipline, organisation, and team player.
When listing soft skills on your CV, you should list them in your resume’s skills section and demonstrate them with examples in your professional experience section.
