JOB SEARCH AND CAREER ADVICE

Engineers Should Master Soft Skills for a Successful Career
Most engineering job descriptions today include some soft skills. If they are not explicitly mentioned, though, they are implied in the context of the job description. In the next few years, some new and emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence will eliminate some jobs. Yet, this is going to create a huge demand for new skills and soft skills -- also called interpersonal skills -- that many engineers perhaps don't have today. Interesting Engineering
