In my prior post I touched on my favourite topic: the skills of a finance professional, the ratio soft vs hard skills. In the article below an interesting survey from Robert Half asking for the importance of hard and soft skills when seeking out for a finance professional. The outcome? An even split of importance – this surprised me. Currently, as I am looking for a new role I still notice great emphasis on the hard skills and the functional expertise. In my opinion (and I am advocating for myself) soft skills are important! This skills enables yourself to connect and partner with the business.
