To Land the Hard Job, Convey Soft Skills

Soft SKILLS, not soft serve!

Hey there people getting ready to complete certified nursing assistant training at the Allen School.  Soon, you’ll be heading out to put all that excellent CNA training to the test.  But first you’ll need to land a job.  And although compared to many other career fields, CNA jobs are easier to find, the interviewing process is still challenging for anyone.  Beyond listing all the great skills you perfected while studying the CNA training course at a respected school like the Allen School, it is critical to convey your “soft skills”.  What are soft skills?  The US News and World Report just published an article about the top 5 soft skills to showcase when interviewing.  You can read all the details here, but the short list for those who like a synopsis includes:

  • Work Ethic
  • Positive Attitude
  • Communication Skills
  • Time Management
  • Self Confidence

You have all these attributes in addition to your extensive knowledge of certified nursing assistant best practices.  So you may as well “sell” them in your next job interview.
