Did you know?

73% of employers put greater emphasis on selecting candidates for open positions that demonstrate “soft skills” rather than academic knowledge?  That means, your ability to build and maintain collaborative, trusting relationships with others, time management, negotiation, managing conflict professionally, your ability to set and achieve goals, communications skills, and a willingness to learn matter more than experience when it comes to landing your first job!  Xiente can help.
