Your skills toolbelt should be a collective of both soft and hard skills that you can use to round out your professional profile. Soft skills are traits that make you a good employee, such as communication, listening, and friendliness. Hard skills are traits that are measurable such as knowledge of computer programs, math, or data analysis.
You don’t need to have every skill collected in your skills toolbelt, but rather should master and collect skills over time during your career journey. Take inventory of things that you are good at and where gaps occur in your knowledge base. You can do this by using the Career Development Toolkit to help you start thinking about what skills you should be targeting to add to your belt. Additional resources can be found on the Walgreens University website.
