CIQS PODCAST "KNOWLEDGE COUNTS" - EPISODE 15
Soft skills with Milan Niksic, civil engineering instructor at SAIT Polytechnic
During this episode of "Knowledge Counts", Wendy and her guest, Milan Niksic, discuss why possessing strong soft skills is just as, or perhaps more, important than some hard skills. Even though soft skills are not directly relevant to a job such as having a fundamental understanding of budgeting projects for a quantity surveyor, without strong communications skills, it can be difficult to make a successful pitch to the company decision makers. Milan discusses various reasons why a company or manager take a person's soft skills into consideration, such as making sure their personality, attitude and manners are a good fit for the company and/or team's culture.
