For example, use bullet points in your work experience section to describe skills that will grab the notice of the hiring manager, such as "Independently developed a customer outreach program for new purchases, resulting in a 25 percent uptick in customer referrals online." You can communicate the soft skills you possess in not only your work experience section but also (and this should be obvious) your skills section. You want to make sure that your soft skills fit the job posting. If there is an emphasis on communication and collaboration, then you want to be sure to include those skills, and provide examples if possible.
For example, 15 percent of employers want someone with customer service skills, even for those jobs that aren't typically associated with customer service. Most employers want to know that you're able to interact in a positive way with clients or customers. At the same time, many employers will be looking for those who are able to problem solve, and are organized resilient – be sure to list those skills if you have them, as it's likely you will need those abilities in most jobs.
