Thanks again for participating in our Employability Skills Assessment for Job-Seekers.
Soft skills are essential competencies that employers seek -- and job-seekers must possess.
Each of the statements on the assessment refers to a specific soft skill sought out by employers. While an overall score for this assessment will give you an idea of your inventory of soft skills, your time might be better served examining the skills you said were not like you -- and developing action steps to move those skills into your comfort zone.
Award yourself points based on the following scale...
10 points for each Great extent like me
8 points for each Somewhat like me
4 points for each Undecided/not sure
2 points for each Very little like me
0 points for each Not like me at all
125-150 pts. -- Exceptionally-Skilled. You have the employability skills employers seek.
100-124 pts. -- Well-Skilled. You have a solid set of soft skills, but might consider improving upon some of them.
75-99 pts. -- Skilled. You have some decent employability skills, but you should consider taking your skills up at least one notch.
60-74 pts. -- Weak-Skilled. Make an action plan today to become more skilled in what employers seek.
Under 60 pts. -- Under-Skilled. You have major work ahead of you to build the skills that will motivate employers to hire you.
