By Lizzie Exton on 24-03-2018

Gaining valuable work experience to put on your CV is one of the major advantages of taking on an internship, but this is also the perfect time to work on some of the so-called soft skills employers are on the lookout for. While putting the name of a company on your resume will undoubtedly give it a little of the sparkle recruiters are after, too few like to boast about the soft skills they've developed.

Recruiters will have a growing pile of CVs from people who like to brag about their qualifications and the technical knowledge they have acquired - there is room for that, or course, but various studies have gone into it. to value these days.

If you've landed yourself a fantastic internship then use the time wisely and work on this top five soft skills to make your CV stand out.

Time management

Some are better than others at managing their time and juggling deadlines, but we have all the time management skills we can work on. Whether they make it on your CV is another matter. Try to keep a note of instances or when you've successfully prioritized and managed your time and time again during your internship.

Communication Skills

You will not want to be the most confident and chatty person in the office, but developing your communication skills will work wonders for your future job prospects. You could, perhaps, volunteer to contribute to the weekly team meeting or ask if you have a hand in penny social media posts. Employers really value communication skills, and proving you've got them means you're more likely to be hired.

Research Skills

Misinformation can be disastrous to a company, and poor background research can have all sorts of terrible knock-on effects.  That’s why many recruiters will be drawn to those who can show they have strong research skills and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure they have all the information they need to make informed decisions.  Keep a record of instances when you’ve needed to do some digging for additional information and how it had a positive impact on your work.

Forward Planning

A little like time management, forward planning means getting organized and making the best use of your time. If you know there are deadlines to meet or projects to submit, do not leave everything until the last minute. Plan your time in advance and set aside periods of the working day. Try to think the time you have in the office.putting off.  Try to think weeks rather than days or hours ahead to maximise the time you have in the office.

Teamwork

It’s one of those buzzwords which has garnered a bit of a bad reputation, and everyone says they are a ‘team player’ on their CV.  Prove to employers that you really are. Try and offer to help other people whenever you can, and if you see something which needs doing then try to be the first to step in to do it.  Having a few examples of times when you’ve been a real asset to your team will help your CV stand out, and it might win you some useful contacts you can call on later down the line.

A brilliant CV isn’t always about showing off how much work experience and industry know-how you have.  These days employers want a fully rounded candidate and not just someone whose qualifications just look good on paper.  Use your internship wisely and work on these soft skills, because they might just be the ticket to landing your dream job in the future.

    VICTIM OF SCAMS BUT NOW A VICTOR THROUGH JOSH LOANS FINANCIAL SERVICE joshloancompany@gmail.com OR +1(215)-874-8060 Helen Truong is my name from 1731 Hilltop Haven Drive, Red Bank, NJ 07701 USA. It lifts my heart to actually use this medium to save innocent people who would have fallen into the wrong hands in quest to obtain an online loan. With all humility I want to personally warn all online loan seekers to be very careful while trying to get a loan, because it is no news that scammers are rampant everywhere all over the internet claiming to offer loan. I was a victim before now and I solemnly hope that you are a victor if you care to take my word of advise. Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. All hope was nearly lost until a co-employee suggested 'JOSH LOANS FINANCIAL SERVICE' an online reliable and trustworthy lender for me, as I was almost at the edge of taking my life considering a loss of about $83,000; As God would have it, I applied for a loan from 'Josh Loans Financial Service' under Cynthia's (co-employee) recommendation and WOW in less than 72 working hours I got a credit alert confirming that my account has been credited with the loan fund of $220,000.00 which i originally requested. If after loosing much God has shown me light with the help of 'JOSH LOANS FINANCIAL SERVICE', you too without doubt can as well obtain a loan from this reputable lending institution. IN ALL, if you, your relation or any closed person desperately need a loan, DO CONTACT or help that soul to communicate with JOSH LOANS FINANCIAL SERVICE via email on joshloancompany@gmail.com OR text/call them on +1(215)-874-8060
