Little Skills

how do you get your soft
skills onto your résumé
or in an interview

this will be a test
of your communication
skills and your initiative

can you solve this problem
and demonstrate your
decisiveness without

undercutting your ability
to cooperate in
teamwork situations

do you have the
responsibility to be
a leader when

it’s necessary
for you to be so
and the flexibility

to pull it all off
in an interview
and day after day

after they hire you
not such a little
thing to be soft
