Why Soft Skills are so Important for Pharma JobsSoft skills refer to the personal qualities you hold that help you thrive in the workplace. Although hard skills tell recruiters about your level of education, technical skills and job-related knowledge, they don’t really give away anything about how you work, and how you are different from your peers.

Although roles within the pharmaceutical industry are often highly specialised, the industry is also extremely collaborative, making soft skills such as communication and interpersonal skills hugely important. Also, for those looking for their first step in the industry and lacking the years of industry experience that other candidates may have, you can use your personal qualities as transferable skills; demonstrating to recruiters how your approach to work has helped you succeed in the past, and how your soft skills would help you thrive in a new industry.
