Congratulations on not being a recruiter !

I read your article up until I read:
Quote:
Why are soft skills important?

A 1918 study – yes, over 100 years ago – by Harvard University, the Carnegie Foundation and Stanford Research Center, found that “85% of a person’s job success is a product of interpersonal (soft) skills and that only 15% of his success is the result of technical knowledge (hard skills).”

Does that still hold up today? It certainly feels right, give or take.

What is true is that many recruiters prefer candidates having all the desired soft skills while missing some of the required hard skills rather than vice-versa. Hard skills training is a lot easier than soft skills training.
At which point I threw up WTF | :WTF:
