The Difference Between Hard and Soft Skills in a Resume

There are two types of skills that should be included in every resume: hard skills and soft skills.

Hard skills are based on IQ and are the specific qualifications required to perform a particular job. For example, "project management", "sales", or "graphic design". Hard skills are qualifications that are developed by working a specific job.

Soft skills are based on personality traits and can be applied to every job. They are referred to as "people skills" or "transferable skills", such as passion, the ability to communicate well, positivity, or energy.
